Police Wrap – 30 July

By johnboy 30 July 2009 46

1. DFO RAGE!!!

    ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault on two people, a 49-year-old Jerrabomberra man and his 45-year-old wife, in the underground carpark of the DFO shopping centre, Fyshwick, on Sunday July 26, 2009

    The male victim had gone to check on the wellbeing of a young man who appeared to be under intimidation by three youths.

    The three male youths have then turned on the Jerrabomberra man and assaulted him by kicking and punching him. The victim’s wife was also abused and physically assaulted.

    The offenders were seen in a silver Mazda 626, possibly a 1992-93 model, with ACT registration plates and a P plate.

    One of the male offenders was described as being around 6’ (183cm) tall with pale skin and a thin face. He was wearing a pale-coloured jumper.

    A second offender was wearing a red-coloured hooded top while another was wearing a blue hooded top. All of the offenders had distinctive haircuts, with short hair at the sides and longer hair on top and at the back of their heads.

    Police believe there were a number of other people in the carpark at the time of the assaults and they may be able to help identify the offenders. Police would urge any witnesses who saw a group of males answering this description, or may have any other information about this matter which could assist the police investigation to call contact Crime Stoppers.

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

Phew, that was close, I was tight head prop.
Making sure the offenders, or could be offenders are aware that there are people out there who will not stand idly by / allow them to intimidate people is also important. If to do nothing more than to make them think twice, or that maybe instead of it all being a laff there may be Repercussions

Maybe it’s something about rugby playing bouncers. I too am gifted / cursed with a gorilla build (see ex front row and bouncer).

This site seems to attract the gorilla type (me = ex loosehead prop and former artilleryman, so big and deaf…). Maybe us gorillas can form our own posse, buy some red berets and go around…. oh wait…

LOL. I’m starting to get a bit spooked though, neanderthalsis! I’m an ex-loose head prop and also a slight deaf ex-military gunner (elbeit navy). Are you me?

Ah, the RA Gorilla Gang. Nice in theory. But where does it stop. I sadly learnt a long time ago to stop interfering when I saw male to female violence, I now politely ask if the lass is ok or wants help, and then mention it to the nearest cop, or call up and report if the reply is f off, as opposed to wanting assistance. Last few times I restrained the gent, and copped a flogging from the female.
While a man striking a woman tends to make me livid, you can normally only help those who will accept it.
OT; not the case here, but a case against the roaming vigilante crew. Sadly.

+1. I’ve had several incidents at clubs and festivals where I’ve gone to help some girl getting hit or yelled at by her (in)significant other just to have her turn on me and tell me to mind my own F***ing business or even slap me. Best you can do is let the bloke know he’s being watched very closely, then report it.

Sign me up. Seriously.

It takes “real big men” to attack a single bloke and a wife with baseball bats…
Nothing but mindless gutless thugs that need to be put through the genetic woodchipper.

Here’s hoping the cops get the plates from the CCTV system.
