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.
â€œThere 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.
