Recognise this woman?

By johnboy - 15 June 2012 13

ACT Policing is seeking assistance in identifying the woman pictured below who attempted to rob the Shabby Attic store at the Carleton Shops in Kambah earlier this week (Tuesday, June 12).

About 1.30pm the woman entered the store on Carleton Street in Kambah armed with a knife. She approached the shop owner and demanded money. The shop owner refused to hand over any money and a short struggle ensued.

The shop owner managed to push the offender out of the shop and lock the door. The offender was last seen running across Boddington Circuit towards the Kambah ovals.

The offender is described as of Aboriginal appearance, about 163cm (5’4”) tall with a large build.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Apparently we are not to joke about serious matters…

Dr. Koresh obviously hasn’t met too many Koorie people. They don’t all have black skin, wear chest scars and carry Nulla Nullas.

Yes, I do recognise this young woman. I’ve seen her at the Winnunga Aboriginal Health Service in Narrabundah when I’ve taken my friend and co-worker in there. I don’t know her name. If the staff there were shown this picture I’m sure they’d recognise her as I have seen her there 3 times. She has that sort of sad look to her, and has quite thin arms. I’d say she would be in her really early 20s.
Now if crime stoppers was a free call from mobiles I could call them.

You can access crime stoppers online to report stuff you know and what not.

I suppose that could of course be the spitting image of the offender, and maybe the store-owner is just so prejudiced that they assumed she must be indigenous because she was committing a crime. 🙁

The photofit doesn’t really strike me as “of aboriginal appearance”. I can understand the police not wanting to colour (sorry) people’s perception of the suspect but wouldn’t ,making her complexion grey or something achieve the same result? ‘Cause that picture looks like it could be any number of (Caucasian) girls I went to school with.

Seriously why not have bars inside the kambah servo and a remote locking door.
It’d be like insta-jail.

When I look at that face I don’t automatically think Steel Magnolias.
