Police Wrap – 27 March

By johnboy 27 March 2009 26

1. Alleged Tuggy Thuggy facefit:

    ACT Policing has released a forensic facefit of a male sought in relation to a vicious group assault on a 27-year-old man in Kambah, early on Sunday March 8.

    The suspect in the facefit was one of a group of males and females who were in a green Toyota Corolla driving on Chirnside Circuit in Kambah around 6.40am on March 8. This suspect is further described as Caucasian, aged between 18-19 years, between 160cm to 170cm (5’3” – 5’7”) in height, with a small-to-medium build, clean shaven and with close-cropped brown hair.

    The victim was driving a silver Commodore station wagon which collided with the green Corolla.

    An argument has then ensued, resulting in the Commodore driver being chased and subsequently assaulted along Chirnside Place by a number of males and females from the Corolla.

    The victim suffered a number of fractures and lacerations as a result of the assault, and was found unconscious a number of hours later in a nearby street.

    Detectives are particularly anxious to interview a woman who was walking her dog on or near Chirnside Circuit at the time and may have witnessed the collision and/or the subsequent assault. She is urged to call police on 131-444.

2. Police ready for Rebels’ Big Day Out at the Serbian Club:

    ACT Policing is advising members of the public that there will be an increase in traffic and visitors to Canberra over the next few days.

    On Saturday afternoon the annual motorbike and tattoo show will be held at the Serbian Club in Mawson and large crowds are expected to attend. The public event is organised by the Rebels Motorcycle Club.

    As with all large events, ACT Policing will have a visible presence around the area to manage the influx of people and traffic and will also patrol entertainment precincts and areas containing licensed establishments following the show.

    Members of ACT Policing Traffic Operations will also increase patrols on our roads over the weekend to manage any traffic issues.

    Members from ACT Policing’s Crime Prevention unit have liaised with local shop and business owners in the Mawson area to advise them of the anticipated increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

    The large numbers of visitors are expected to remain in Canberra for a number of days, and as such ACT Policing will respond accordingly over the weekend and into early next week to ensure all events run smoothly and disruption to the public is kept to a minimum.

    ACT Policing would like to remind people participating in the weekend events to enjoy themselves however use common sense strategies when out and about.

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

I will be attending the tattoo and bike show were all looking forward to the event my 8 year old girls love all the “cool” bikes and I’m not in the least worried about any trouble there hasn’t been any in the past.
And the bonus with an increased number of bikies in town due to events earlier in the week is more bikes to enjoy.

I’ll be popping out his arvo for a look too.

Dvaey – The focus of ACT Police switched to high vis years ago so I am not quite sure where you are coming from. The whole suburban policing strategy, people feeling safe in their homes and things like that.

I was at the Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner the other night when The Cheiftain made a joke about calculating the contribution 800 bikies would make to the local economy. Got a good laugh (actually, it’s the first time I’ve heard him say anything genuinely funny).
