1. Fyshwick servo rolled:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery at the United Service Station in Fyshwick this morning (Wednesday November 17).

About 2.05am, a man entered the service station, approached the counter and threatened the male attendant with a knife, demanding cash.

The male attendant opened the register, and the offender reached over the counter and stole an amount of cash.

The offender exited the store on Canberra Avenue, and was last seen walking down Yallourn Street.

The male offender is described as being between 17 to 21 years old, approximately 160cms (5’3”) tall, with short blond hair. He was wearing black jeans and a white hooded jumper with a black pattern at the time of the incident. He also spoke with an Australian accent.

Anyone who was in Fyshwick near the United Service Station at the time of the incident, or knows the identity of the above male offender is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

2. Car into house:

ACT Policing is investigating a collision which occurred at 1:00am this morning November 17, 2010 in which a car crashed through the wall of an Isabella Plains house.

Members of Tuggeranong Patrol attended the location and assisted the occupants evacuate the house.

Witnesses told police that they saw four young males flee the scene, leaving the vehicle halfway inside the house with a large hole in the exterior wall.

It is believed no one was injured in the incident. Damage to the house has been estimated at more than $100,000.

That’ll narrow it down…

Didn’t someone on RiotAct suggest just the other day that no one would ever use language like that to describe a suspect?

No – it was about ethnic background, people can be of any ethnic background whilst having an Australian accent.

I have no problem with describing a persons appearance, down to the finest detail, if it is done by the police in the context of looking for a suspect.

What I do have a problem with is people using an anonymous internet forum to use an ethnic description of an alleged offender who committed a ‘crime’ that may or may not have happenned.

It just smacks of the great Chaser headline ‘ethnic wog gangs rape our women.’

And they really look like their at the upper end of the intelligence spectrum don’t they? A couple of years in a ‘real prison’ in general population may benefit – well, if they like painting their nails and answering the name of ‘bitch’ anyway!

I wonder if smashing the pokies was some sort of political statement, or if they were just bored?
