cctv shot

ACT Policing has released CCTV images of two alleged offenders following the aggravated robberies of two taxi drivers in Red Hill and Weston earlier this month (Friday, September 9).

The first incident occurred around 4.40am when the taxi driver was approached by two men in Cygnet Crescent, Red Hill. One of the men punched the driver while the other opened the passenger door and stole a mobile phone and wallet.

The second incident occurred around 5.55am in the Cooleman Court car park in Weston. The driver was threatened by two men, one with a possible tyre iron, who robbed him of his mobile phone and wallet.

The first offender is described as wearing a white-coloured jumper and the other a dark-coloured jumper. Both males are described as Caucasian in appearance.

Anyone who may recognise the two men from the description and images, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

If this really is a 14 year old then whoever he is he should not be publicly identified and named.

You’re correct, he should be publicly flogged and stoned to (near) death

In Google maps, when you type in Cygnet Crescent, Red Hill, Australian Capital Territory, check out street view, it takes you to the flats there, and the first thing I have noticed-a car, white sedan, with NSW plates, which looks like it was broken into.3/4 driver side window smashed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Check it out.

Also, if you turn up your speakers you can hear a lone dog howling in the distance.

Bloody Caucasians, they’re all criminals. We should deport the lot of them back to Caucasia.

10 points for whoever can explain where the term Caucasian comes from.

I think Mr.Wiki gets the 10 points! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Wiki article refers to Georgians as the most beautiful people in the world. And yet they managed to produce Stalin

And that is wrong?

Thanks for the good laugh that some of these comments have provided

It should never have happened but anyone who parks on Cygnet Crescent is asking for trouble.

If you know who it is, then why don’t you contact Crime Stoppers?

If they’re any good at the intel game, police are monitoring forums like RiotACT and based on above comment would be onto Nemo already. So Justice 1 had better be right or a swat team or hexocopter drone may about to take out the wrong person.

(or am I overestimating ACT police capabilities?)

I know exactly who this is. His name is Steven Hodgson aka Nemo. Probably already known to the cops and I’m surprised he hasn’t already been identified.

The boy in your photo is my son hes 14yrs old and HOW DARE YOU plaster him on the net as a person of suspicion for aggravated robbery I suggest you remove this photo ASAP as you have now tagged my boy as a suspected criminal how would you feel if this was your child simply robbing taxi drivers with his brother in law. Youse lot make me sick with your acusations if my blue (NOT WHITE) commodore hadn’t been towed for illegal parking the other day they wouldn’t even have go near those taxis and wouldn’t have been filmed SHAME ON YOU the person that calls themselves johnboy!!!!

Love, Geraldine

yet another reason why:

(a) hoodies should be banned

And why all hoodies should have a jail serial number pre-embroided on the front and back. Saves us paying $$$ to hunt them down. Go straight to jail, do not pass go.

That nose has taken a few punches over the years. Hopefully it gets a few more in gaol.

yet another reason why:

(a) hoodies should be banned
(b) Canberra needs a taskforce of exorcists and slayers to cast off the demonic activity possessing our derro yuff

Zombies.

Wha? couldn’t find the keys to the White Commodore so needed some taxi money to get home?

Bloody Caucasians, they’re all criminals. We should deport the lot of them back to Caucasia.

Epic fail +1
