Pedestrian punch up

By johnboy 2 November 2013 22

ACT Policing has arrested a 28-year-old Yarralumla man after he allegedly assaulted a man at an intersection in the city last night (Friday, November 1).

Around 11.50pm police were conducting mobile patrols along London Circuit (Civic) when they noticed a large group crossing the intersection against the red pedestrian signal. Vehicles were attempting to drive through the intersection along Northbourne Avenue but were forced to stop as the group impeded their way.

A male passenger of one vehicle beeped the horn at the group directing them to move out of the way. The offender then gestured for a fight. The victim exited his vehicle, with the intentions of negotiating with the man. The offender has then allegedly struck the victim in his face.

Police immediately entered the intersection and separated both parties. Police arrested the alleged offender who was taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with common assault and crossing when a pedestrian light is not green.

He was bailed from the Watch House to appear before the ACT Magistrates Court on November 12.

Anyone who witnessed the disturbance and is yet to speak to police is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Civic used to be a no-go zone after 1-2 AM. It seems that time creeps forward every year. Seems already overrun by seedy types at 10 PM these days.
