Old man mugged, beaten, at Belconnen Mall

By johnboy 24 February 2013 25

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to the robbery of a 75-year-old man yesterday morning (Saturday, February 23).

About 9.40am, the elderly man was followed from the Commonwealth Bank ATM to the ground level Myer car park of Westfield Belconnen.

The offender threw the man to the ground and kicked him several times. The offender fled after stealing the man’s wallet.

The victim was taken to hospital, but has since been released.

The offender is described as being Aboriginal in appearance. He is about 170cm (5’7”) tall with a solid build. At the time, he was wearing a brown top, black pants and white shoes.

Anyone who may have seen the incident, or the man described is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

While we’re advocating capital punishment for drug dealers and assaults can we put in the cyclists that ride two abreast?

Everyone is avoiding the main topic here but this man!

Of course there would be high quality CCTV appropriately positioned in the Westfield carparks in order to deter the low life from resorting to brazen,vile behaviour, wouldn’t there?

We are of course assuming that this person took drugs, however this could be the unfortunate consequence of flaunting wealth in front of someone from an oppressed minority. If there were sufficient services, education, social welfare, and money put into this community there would be no need for people to act out their frustrations. [/sarcasm]

Actually, you will probably find that an educated person with employment and an income is highly unlikely to commit a buglary/assault at 9am at Belconnen Mall. 1am in Civic for the educated person’s assault.

Probably goes out with the other female of aboriginal appearance that had a spate of muggings at the bus interchange/mcdonalds last year.
There is a sect of people of aboriginal appearance in belconnen at the govie flats. So were paying for them to be close to go and mug people.

Good thing we’re spending money on cycle ways, soon the muggers will be mobile.
