Sexual Assault in Lyons

By Skidbladnir - 12 March 2008 21

From the Media Release

ACT Policing is investigating a sexual assault on a 61-year-old woman in an apartment complex in Lyons about 1.10am Tuesday March 11.

The woman was watering her garden when she was attacked from behind and sexually assaulted by an unknown male.
The victim was only able to provide a limited description of the offender, stating he smelt strongly of alcohol and had a deep voice.
The victim contacted a neighbour who called the Triple 0 emergency line and alerted police. The woman was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital for treatment.

Police urge anyone who may have witnessed a male acting suspiciously in the early hours of the morning in the Staverton Place area to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Right, so there’s no way she’ll ever be sexually assaulted then. Jeezus.

My mother wouldn’t be outside at 1am.

Yes, it is a very sad case, but the reality is it just isn’t safe to do this kind of thing. I wish the world was a better place, but unfortunately there are a lot of scumbags out there.

Some of the comments on here are in really poor taste – how would you feel if it was your mother?

Tuesday night was pretty warm, I know I didn’t sleep, but I was busy doing something exciting.
So it is possible that she was just out watering the garden.

But even if she was wearing only a smile and a nightgown, its still no reason to go and rape someone’s gradma.

agreed.. Let’s be honest here, she was not watering her garden. She was probably doing something dodgy actually – she is from lyons.

I wasn’t trying to be funny.

I’m saying that being female and out watering your lawn/garden at 1 am in Lyons is probably not a good idea, especially when you live close to Strathgordon Court.

There, is that plain enough to understand?

That is a pretty strange time to be watering your garden! Maybe she couldn’t sleep or something I suppose..

FFS find another thread for you piss poor attempts at humour

Mr Evil 12:38 pm 13 Mar 08

Well, it really wasn’t worth it was it?

A nice green lawn and garden ain’t much to enjoy after you’ve been raped.

Watering her garden at 1.10am on a Tuesday morning?

Just trying to beat the water restrictions without being dobbed in by a nosey neighbour.

Mr Evil 12:01 pm 13 Mar 08

Well, that’d knock that idea on the head won’t it.

Staverton Place is just behind the Church at Woden.

But they didn’t say where in Lyons. I live in Lyons and our suburb is much better now that Burnie has gone, but apparently we’ve still got a ways to go.
