Mean teens of Florey roll the Dominos twice

By johnboy - 23 December 2011 24

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident at the Florey shops last night (December 22) after two Dominos staff members were assaulted by a group of young people.

Around 10.30pm, two male youths entered the Dominos Pizza store at the Florey shops and stole food and soft drink. Two staff members from Dominos located the two youths and a group of young people near the Florey oval, a short distance away from the shops. The group was eating the food that had been taken from Dominos and agreed to return to the shop to pay for the items.

The group of youths followed the two Dominos staff members to the rear of the Dominos Pizza shop, but as they approached the rear door, the group have forced the two staff members to the ground and repeatedly kicked and punched them. The group of youths fled the area towards Krefft Street.

ACT Ambulance Service attended the Florey shops and treated the two staff members for cuts and abrasions.

The group of about 10 youths is described as being aged between 13 and 16 years.

Anyone who was at the Florey shops around 10.30pm on Thursday evening and witnessed the assault, or may be able to assist police with the investigation, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Yep. I feel sorry for Dominos staff regardless. Is Florey becoming the new Charney?
Lets hope these young persons are made to account for their actions soon.

10 youths are described as being aged between 13 and 16 years. That is really quite scary to me, a gang that large committing that kind of crime. Were some of them good kids just participating in gang mentality? Or were they all felons. You would of thought at least a few of them would stand up to the others and say that what they were doing was wrong.

Frightening.

I will say it again- Florey is the new Charnie..

Seems likely that the staff likely know who the perps are,

Maybe it’s time school holidays were a privilege for those who have earned trust and everyone else can attend compulsory holiday programs situated in schools.

I vote chain gang for the trouble-makers, picking up rubbish around the ACT

I don’t agree with the chains but just a few days ago I was looking at the weeds infesting some of the median strips where the ornamental grasses make weedspraying difficult and thinking there’s some potential for people who want to repay their debt to society to do something useful. Where do the community service order people go anyway? It seems you only hear about it when one appears in court again after not turning up. Maybe some more conspicuous community service, and some genuine words of encouragement from passers-by, would help them more and would make us less cynical about the whole idea?
Getting back on topic, where did the parents of the 13 year old think he was at 10.30 at night?

There is a distinction between school and prison. Or there should be!

There should be a distinction between kids enjoying their holidays and kids comitting crime.

It didn’t take long for the Canberra Times to report another incident that makes me wonder where the h@ll society is headed. 🙁

I don’t know the layout of the Florey shops. Why would the Dominos staff choose to lead the kids through the rear of the store when they returned? I understand if the staff don’t like bringing thieves to the front counter (bad look), but leading a group of crims into backstreets and loading docks doesn’t sound like the safest idea to me.

Maybe, but let’s not lose sight of who is at fault. I feel so sad for the staff. Maybe it’s time school holidays were a privilege for those who have earned trust and everyone else can attend compulsory holiday programs situated in schools, might have less school buildings burning down that way too.

If I went to the trouble of chasing down a thief, I like to think I would put in a little extra effort to provide them with an adequate deterrent against future stupidity.

I’m guessing school holidays started yesterday.

The front entrance leads directly into the kitchen area. The “rear entrance” was probably the drivers’ entrance, closer to the ‘office’…
