Police Wrap – 7 May

By johnboy - 7 May 2009 32

1. Ainslie newsagent knocked over by dirty Charnies:

    ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated burglary which occurred at the Ainslie Newsagency Thursday May 7, 2009

    Around 2.55am a silver Hyundai Excel stopped in front of the shop located on Edgar Street. The vehicle’s lights were shone into the store front for about a minute before a man exited the car and took up a position near the entrance. The driver then reversed up to the store and nudged the plate glass window twice before it shattered.

    Both men then entered the shop and attempted to open the cigarette cabinets but were unsuccessful. Nothing of value was taken before the men left in the vehicle towards the city along Cox Street.

    Both men used balaclavas to cover their faces and wore gloves, with one wearing a fluorescent vest.

    AFP Forensic Services attended the scene.

    It is believed the vehicle used in the raid was stolen from Charnwood shops between 6pm and 1am last night.

    Police are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen suspicious persons or activity around the Ainslie shops in the early hours of this morning to contact Crime Stoppers

2. Naughty North Lyneham Massage:

    ACT Policing’s Territory Investigation Group is investigating an alleged sexual assault of a 19-year-old female victim in North Lyneham on Tuesday (May 5).

    Police will allege the 44-year-old male offender had sexual intercourse without consent with the victim as he gave her a massage.

    The victim attended Belconnen Station a short time later and reported the incident to police.

    The alleged offender attended Belconnen Police Station last night and police arrested the Ngunnawal man around 9.45pm (May 6). Items from the alleged offender have been seized. He will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (May 7) charged with sexual intercourse without consent.

    Police have issued a warning to members of the public that they assess the qualifications of a provider before receiving a massage, and would urge anyone who believes they may have been subjected to improper sexual conduct during a massage to contact police on 131-444.

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

I think saying “what did she expect” in reference to any alleged sexual assault is in poor taste. No matter the context. The culture of ‘blame the victim’ is already doing enough damage as it is.

Absolutely. I think you’re sending the wrong massage Steady Eddie

I’d be interested in knowing if that masseuse also worked at a certain massage place in Griffith…. Grateful if someone could publish his name if/when it appears.

don’t think he’s a masseuse, and by the sounds of it not much of a masseur either!

My thoughts exactly FC…

Is sexual intercourse without consent the same as rape? Sounds like the very definition of it to me.

“rape” is no longer a term that is used in regard to sexual. The terms are more specific.
“Rape” could mean a variety of things, whereas the current definitions are far more descriptive of what actually (allegedly) occured.

I certainly hope you are only joking Steady Eddie!

It doesn’t matter if he is joking, he is a d*ckhead

I think they took “rape” out of the police list of things to charge people with a while back, and re-named it sexual assault, although that covered a range of things. Then I think they can use more specific charges to categorise the assault.

Steady Eddie 3:19 pm 07 May 09

What did she expect? Everybody knows that “massage” is a euphemism for sex.

…with one wearing a fluorescent vest.

Evidently even criminals are taking OH&S seriously now.
