1. Neighbourhood Watch:

ACT Policing has charged a 24-year-old Braddon man and a 34-year-old Downer woman following an alleged burglary in Downer yesterday (October 25).

Around 11.20am neighbours observed the alleged offenders leaving the Atherton Street residence in a stolen motor vehicle from the property and a white Mitsubishi Lancer.

The home owner then returned to confirm a burglary had occurred. The stolen property included three laptop computers, an external hard drive, a TV and a motor vehicle.

Around 4.20pm members of Criminal Investigations, Crime Targeting Team (CTT) located the stolen motor vehicle at a unit complex in Braddon. One of the alleged offenders was subsequently located at his residence and arrested.

CTT members maintained surveillance on the stolen motor vehicle and the Mitsubishi Lancer subsequently arrived, parking beside the stolen motor vehicle. The second alleged offender was arrested in the Lancer with a significant quantity of stolen property.

A forensic examination was conducted of the stolen motor vehicle and the Mitsubishi Lancer was seized with a search warrant to be executed on it today (26 October).

Both alleged offenders were arrested and charged with aggravated burglary and theft. They will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (26 October) where bail is to be opposed.

2. Always in a white Commodore:

face fit

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault on a 16-year-old boy walking on the street in Fisher yesterday afternoon (Monday, October 25).

The youth had been walking on Badimara Street in Fisher around 3.15pm yesterday when a white car – possibly a Holden Commodore wagon – drove past him, turned around and then stopped a short distance away. The car may have had up to five occupants.

A male got out of the passenger’s seat of the car and threw a can at the youth, then approached the victim and without provocation, punched him in the face. The assailant did not make demands nor say anything to his victim.

The offender is described as Caucasian around 183cm (6’) tall, with a skinny build, aged in his late teens or early 20s, clean shaven, with short brown hair. He was wearing a red or maroon coloured T-shirt with a pattern.

Several witnesses to the incident have come forward but police are continuing to urge any other members of the public who may have seen the assault, or may have any other information which could assist the investigation to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.crimestoppers.com.au.

3. Scootress down:

collision

ACT Policing’s Collision, Investigation and Reconstruction Team is seeking witnesses to a collision which occurred in Yarralumla earlier today (Tuesday, October 26).

Police were called to Lady Denman Drive near the Government House lookout around 8.45am, following a collision between a dark blue Suzuki Swift and a silver Aprilia Scooter.

The rider of the scooter, a 31-year-old woman from Flynn, was taken to The Canberra Hospital, where she remains in a stable condition. The 28-year-old male driver of the Suzuki Swift is assisting police with their inquiries.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, and has not already spoken to police, are asked to contact Crime Stoppers.

What’s Your opinion?

Point to point and speed cameras would have prevented the accident….

Didn’t look good when i drove past; glad to hear that rider’s life is not in danger. Will this lead to the ACT Government doing some work on the Government House Lookout carpark, like identifying an entrance and exit? With Parkway and GDE fully operational, that section of Lady Denman Drive get quite busy at times.

I really struggle to understand how there could possibly be a collision on Lady Denman near the gov house lookout. Its two lanes, long and straight.

Drivers need to be much more careful of motorcyclists and cyclists. They are very exposed and need more space and time to be as safe as car drivers.

Traffic was backed up from the roundabout at the end, I think the swift driver decided to chuck a u-turn and somehow collected the scooter. It happened a few cars behind me on the way to work, I heard the impact and turned around to see her lying on the road… good to see a lot of people immediately out of their cars rendering assistance.

What irony, the two most common jerk vehicles on the road are Swifts and Scooters. Only thing missing to round out the top three is a late 80s white commodore with lowered suspension and faux-air intake.
