The cops caught the last group of knife wielders. It was a group of 15 or so year olders.

Again? Did they end up getting the last bloke who rolled it?

Speaking of getting rolled, my landlord’s 12 y/o son and mate were riding home from school in Melba a couple of weeks ago and were allegedly bailed up by 2 blokes with a meat cleaver for a kids bike. It’s in the hands of police now, and apparently they are aware of the blokes involved.
