Mugged on College Street

By johnboy - 28 April 2013 50

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred in Belconnen yesterday (Saturday, 27 April).

At around 8.30pm a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were walking along College Street returning to their residence in Belconnen.

They were approached by three males, one of the males produced a knife and demanded the pair hand over their wallets and other items.

After they complied with his demands the men ran off in the direction of the Belconnen Mall.

The three males are described as African in appearance and over six feet tall. One male was described as wearing a white checkered shirt, dark tracksuit pants with a white stripe and white canvas shoes.

Police conducted a full search of the surrounding area but were unable to locate the offenders.

Police are urging anyone with information which can assist in identifying the men or may have witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website act.crimestoppers.com.au.

If we adopted the Indonesian method for dealing with drugs, the problem would quickly right itself

If that were true then Indonesia would have no drug problem. Since we know how they deal with their drug problem, that is clearly not the case. Therefore your statement is logically invalid

Shouldn’t be hard to find…

Seen these guys around, dodgy as hell.

Yes we get it, all black peeps look the same and you are terrified of all of them.

So gross dude.

Wtf !!!??? Is for real? In Canberra?

Why so surprised? College street is worse than northbourne flats.

Gee I love butting heads with you. Where’s your source? 🙂

Hmm i suspect the source will be MIA.Even though Le Dinh was murdered in College St in 2010 the level of crime in the Northbourne flats area that i’ve been aware of over the decades has been significantly higher than what’s occurred in College St.So CGN i’ll raise ya the flats and call your bluff on College st 🙂

There are a metric buttload of govvie flats, town house and scummy houses on and all around college street. I would say go for a wander at night but I like both you guys. Give it a hit with google earth maybe? Or just do a drive by of college street and its off shoots next time in belco.

Especially considering drugs weren’t mentions anywhere in the report. If only you’d said we should take the approach to violent crime the same way Indonesians do to drugs then I might have agreed with you.

What? You saw some 6ft Africans around and just assume that was them? Are you for real? If the AFP were after red heads , I see them all the time….and they can be real dodgy too. They are not too hard to find either…..

And what does the government propose to do to stop the gang violence in Belconnen?

More speed cameras?
