Police Wrap – 19 July

By johnboy - 19 July 2009 32

1. Bad girls of Curtin out on a spree:

    ACT Policing is seeking public assistance to identify a female offender who attempted to rob two south-side businesses last night (July 18).

    About 6.10pm the female entered the 5 Star supermarket in Kambah and threatened the male attendant with a weapon, passing him a note which demanded money. She left a short time later with nothing after the attendant challenged her, and was last seen running up Mannheim Street toward Sulwood Drive.

    The same female then entered the Shell Service Station on Strangways Street in Curtin about 6.55pm, again passing a note demanding money, and again making off with nothing after she walked outside and was locked-out of the store. This time she was brandishing a knife. She was last seen running towards Carruthers Street.

    Neither of the store attendants were injured during the incident, and ACT Policing is reminding people who are threatened with a weapon not to confront the offender. Attention should instead be paid to obtaining a thorough description of their appearance, clothing and mannerisms to assist police in their identification.

    The female is described as about 15-18 years old, 5’2” in height and of slim build with blue eyes. She was wearing a brown and grey patterned jacket with a furry, brown hood lining, black jeans and white sneakers, and was carrying a green bag.

    Anyone who thinks they may know this female or who may have seen someone matching this description last night is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.

interesting how the police don’t mention her ethnicity. if she had been “of Middle Eastern Appearance” or indigenous, this would have made it into the headline. how about some equal treatment, boys and girls in blue?

Maybe the witnesses couldn’t pick one Detective Einstein

Well you’ve got to understand the ancient greeks ran afghanistan for hundreds of years. So there’s a bit of blonde hair running around there as well.

Standard “middle eastern”? Remember that for hundreds of years they extracted children as tribute from central europe and their slaving fleets plundered northern europe as far afield as iceland.

So there are a lot of genes for blues eyes floating around out there.

There’s exceptions to almost every rule, all part of the wonderful world we live in.

They can have blue eyes too.

Yeah. Also silver/gray as well. And didn’t that girl in the famous “Afghan Girl” photo have green eyes?

Not to mention my female chinese friend whose son has blue eyes. Yes, her husband is of Irish descent but wasn’t brown/black eyes a dominant gene? At least that’s what I was taught back in school (late 80’s).

I think this same person did try again, we had it over the bus drivers radio to look out for this guy last night & then again today, but with a helper in Lonsdale Street Braddon-yes she did (attempt) another robbery. That was around 13:30, but I forgot most of the description given of the other offender.

But then again she can’t be that smart if she walks outside & then gets locked out. I wonder if more robberies are occurring thanks to the money problems worldwide? As we are seeing more not so clever criminals & this latest one read in the paper about there being more knife crimes.

Why the hell wouldn’t they include racial appearance if it’s known? It’s not like everyone from {insert racial group here} is a criminal, and if it helps capture the offender, then great.

How do you know she wasn’t of Middle Eastern appearance? They can have blue eyes too.

Kambah, again?

Wonder if her note said: “I’ve got a gub.”

bd84 3:35 pm 19 Jul 09

Just look through their list of repeat offenders, I’m sure she will be there already.

Third time lucky?

I think she should find a different career. She’s really not terribly gifted at armed robbery.
