Police Wrap – 18 September 2010

By johnboy - 18 September 2010 46

1. A hero emerges:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident in Monash last night in which a 14-year-old boy was assaulted and robbed by a passing motorist.

The youth has admitted to police that he, in the company of another male youth, had been throwing eggs at passing vehicles on Erindale Drive in Monash, adjacent to the Trinity Christian School, last night (Friday, September 17) around 11pm.

One of the eggs struck a white van which has then stopped and given chase.

The van’s male driver has pursued the 14-year-old to a location near the school library where he assaulted the boy, demanded cash from him and also stole his mobile phone.

The offender and driver of the white van was described as Caucasian, around 6’ (183cm) tall, with a balding/receding hairline and a light facial stubble.

Police are urging any witnesses to the incident, or who may be able to provide more information about the offender, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

$700 paint damage to my car door, all for just parking it on the street for two hours one Saturday night. I don’t know how anyone could have thrown an egg that hard at my car and caused damage that when straight thru the pain but they did. As much as I hope the kid is alright and not hurt, I also hope he has learned a serious lesson and doesn’t instead decide to throw large rocks off of bridges next time….

So kids are still egging these days!? I thought throwing eggs at cars was a thing of the past like playing outside or 2 cent lollies. Good on the little shits!

I’m going to go against the grain and suggest that the kid went home to mum and dad with a big sob story about the nasty man who pulled over and threatened him for no reason. Mum and Dad, suitably horrified that little Johnny was potentially the victim of a serial predator, phoned the police who raced over.

Little Johnny realises that he has created a slightly bigger fable than he intended to, so tells the police the real reason the guy in the white van pulled over.

Little Johnny lost his phone earlier in the day, but now seizes on the opportunity to get a new one without getting into further trouble from Mum and Dad who are less than impressed when they find out their little darling has been creating mayhem and they wasted the time of the police.

“Sometimes lessons need to be learnt “the hard way”.”

Although agree egging is very wrong and dangerous, but two wrongs don’t make a right.

No but two wrongs can sometimes make “an even”.

High fives to Van-Man.
Minus the robbery bit of course… That is pretty crap.
