Police arrest man for Civic assaults

By Kerces 30 August 2005 25

After the police initially dismissing concerns raised in the local media about Civic’s safety, they have gone out and arrested someone to reassure people they are doing their job.

In this release they tell us a 19-year-old Rivett man has been arrested for involvement in two recent assaults and robberies. The arrest came after police interviewed people beleived to have been involved in the incidents, which took place on 13 and 20 August.

The officer in charge of the Civic station, detective Sargeant Harry Hains is, as could be expected, highly positive about the whole thing and says of course police are doing their jobs.

“There has been a committed police effort, as there always is with matters such as these, to investigate and apprehend those whom we allege are responsible for these crimes,” he says in the release.

“There has been a combination of forensic and intelligence evidence we have used, as well as solid policing to make today’s arrest, and we expect further developments will follow in the coming days.”

Amazing what a bit of media pressure can do.

I thought it was scripted from the police day book from a little country town called Kambah, with a bigger town nearby called Woden…
