1. Ainslie has thuggies too:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred in Ainslie Wednesday, 30 September 2009.

About 6.45pm, the female victim parked her vehicle in her home driveway. When she exited the vehicle, she was pushed to the ground by two male offenders. One offender demanded her handbag and snatched it from her hand.

The first male was described as in his early 20’s, approximately 183cm (6’) tall, of a slim build, wearing dark clothing and either a dark baseball cap or a black beanie.

The second male is described as being of a similar age and height, with a slightly heavier build and wearing similar clothing but no hat.

4. Thuggeranong home invasions:

ACT Policing is seeking a male who is suspected to have been involved in two brazen home break-ins in Tuggeranong over the past 24 hours.

On both occasions, the thief was undeterred by the presence of the residents.

Around 10.50pm yesterday (September 28), police were called to a home in Rohan St, Richardson, where it had been reported that a man had made several attempts to gain entry to a house, before removing and crawling through a security grille to gain access.

The 21-year-old woman at home at the time of the break-in had contacted police, who attended and began pursuing the offender, who fled by jumping over a number of backyard fences and managed to evade police.

The offender was described as Caucasian, around 6’1” (187cm) tall, with a medium build, blond hair and a fair complexion. He was wearing dark clothing.

The same offender is suspected to have been involved in another burglary around 2.05am today (Tuesday, September 29). Police were called to a residence in Chauncy St, Richardson, where an offender was reported to have entered the house. The offender was disturbed by a resident during the course of the offence and fled the house, taking a handbag containing cash and credit cards.

Police would like to take this opportunity to remind residents to fully secure their homes before going to bed, and would urge anyone who saw a suspicious person answering the description above in the Richardson area late last night or early this morning to contact Crime Stoppers.

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

Let’s just hope these idiots decide to break into the home of a Karate World Champion or firearm collector. Hopefully they will be carried out on stretchers or worse.

But wait – then the poor house intrusion victim will be charged with assault. What a world we live in.

It’s, like, easy man. You just get some wood, yeah, and you like, wrap an oily rag around the end, yeah? And you like, set it on fire. And there you go – you’re armed with fire, man.

Why didn’t the fireman do anything? Was he demanding cash, too?
