Teen muggers in Dickson

By johnboy - 19 March 2013 59

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery that occurred in Dickson yesterday (Monday, 18 March).

Around 9.45pm a 33-year-old man was walking home from the Dickson Shops to his address in Hackett when he observed three young men who were allegedly harassing a person ahead of him on the path.

Moments later the 33-year-old man was approached by the same three young men and was pushed in the chest. Several threats were made before the men fled the area with a small sum of cash.

The first offender is described as approximately 13 years of age, light skinned, short brown curly hair and had crooked teeth. He was wearing a grey jumper and had a backpack.

The second boy is described as approximately 15-16 years of age, 168cm tall, light brown skin with a chubby face.

The third is described as approximately 15-16 years of age, 165cm tall, dark skin, with curly black hair. He was also holding a stick in his hand.

Police would like to speak to a jogger who may have been in the area during the incident as well as the person who was first harassed by the juveniles.

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time and can assist police with their investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I belted the guy closest to me. He dropped like a stone.

That’s a half done community service, and also technically just self-defence.

You should have followed it up with a bit more belting to this feral as a deterrent.
He would have thanked you for it.

The report neglected to mention that the victim has cerebral palsy & an intellectual disability ie an “easy target”.

Which makes the assailants complete scum.

here is a tip. Just knock one of them out right at the start. 2 to go. They will probably piss there pants and run

Assault, not to mention they could probably beat the crap out of you, Big Man

Tell you what, you give us your address and phone number, and before we choose to defend ourselves, we’ll offer those details to the crims and give them the option of robbing you instead.

I did this at the back of Charny shops one day about five- six years ago. Three kids (teens) asked me for my wallet. I laughed and said, ‘f*ck off’.

They asked again, rather more threatening. No point discussing the situation so I belted the guy closest to me. He dropped like a stone. The others ran like they were being chased like a banshee, which they were, me, and I was mightly pissed off. Couldn’t catch them though.

Would I do it again? Dunno. But at this stage I was so affronted by the nerve of these kids to ask me for my wallet in broad daylight while I was doing so shopping.

Yep. I’m not a tough guy or a fighter, but it would be on for young and old the moment I got pushed.

ACT Policing-speak never fails to raise a chuckle. As I have said before, someone in that office not only has the photos, but also the videos, emails, texts and in this modern era, perhaps even dopey twitters. Nothing else could account for the remarkable combination of illiteracy and opacity that characterises their media releases.

“Around 9.45pm a 33-year-old man was walking home from the Dickson Shops to his address in Hackett when he observed three young men who were allegedly harassing a person ahead of him on the path.”

Plain English – Around 9.45pm a man says that he saw three young men harassing a person (?) [somewhere] (what path? where?).

“Moments later the 33-year-old man was approached by the same three young men and was pushed in the chest. Several threats were made before the men fled the area with a small sum of cash.”

Plain English – The men then then pushed and threatened the witness and stole money from him before fleeing.

Notice that ACT Policing thinks that it is so important that the anonymous witness/victim is 33 years old, that they have to tell us twice. It must be critical to cracking the case.

It must be the other wordsmith today, though, as the gratuitous “has” is not in evidence. As in “The man has walked down the path …”.

I do this every now and then, to try to raise awareness about the amateurish and incompetent face of our local cops. Perhaps I should ride a tricycle backwards to Albury while wearing a tutu, to keep up with the ‘raising awareness’ circus.

Oh well. 🙂

I have seen kids matching this description hanging around the Hackett shops numerous times. I think they live either in the vicinity of Madigan Street Hackett or Antill Street Watson. I think I will be putting in a call to Crimestoppers this morning…

I agree. The one holding the stick would be a good start.

And I bet their parents know exactly who to blame: the police! Low life children of low life scum.

Some consistency would be good in these reports.13-16 year olds are not ‘young men’, they’re children or as stated at the end ‘juveniles’. Still, very good descriptions; crooked teeth, chubby face ..

These little s***bags need to be put down like a vicious dog would be. If they have parents who are alive then the parents need to be punished for bringing up such germs!!!
