ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after a man attempted to rob a 15-year-old girl in Lyons last night (Thursday, 14 March).
About 8pm the girl was walking in the grassed area between Melrose Drive and Marrawah Street, when she was approached by the man who demanded her bag.
When she refused, the man punched her in the stomach. The girl fought back, kicking and punching the man causing him to fall to the ground. The girl fled, with no items being stolen and suffering no injuries.
The man is described as being aged in his late twenties or early thirties. He is between 180-190cm (5’11”-6’3”) tall with a medium build and a square chin. During the incident, he was wearing a black top, and had gelled hair.
Anyone who may have witnessed the attempted robbery, or saw the man in the area around the time of the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
