Around 7:45pm police were contacted by a 16-year-old male youth who stated he had been assaulted and searched by a group of males as he walked home from Lanyon Marketplace, Conder. The youth told police the males were in a Toyota Kluger 4WD.
Then around 8pm police were contacted by a 28-year-old man who stated he had been walking along Hallstrom Circuit, Monash, when he heard a vehicle approach. A man stepped out from the vehicle and hit him in the back of the head causing him to fall to the ground and lose his glasses. The victim sustained a number of further strikes to his head and arms and eventually released his grip on a bag he was carrying.

Around 45 minutes later police were contacted by an 18-year-old man who stated he had been delivering pizzas in Fred Lane Crescent, Gordon, when four males exited a 4WD and made demands. The victim handed over cash and three pizzas.
