Thuggees in Ainslie!

By johnboy - 16 July 2011 7

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Ainslie early yesterday morning (Friday, July 15).

Around 12.30am, a 28-year-old man was walking along Ebden Street in Ainslie when a white sedan stopped beside him. Two men exited the vehicle, and approached the man, demanding he hand over his property.

The victim handed over his wallet and white Omega “Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronograph” watch to the two men, who then returned to their vehicle and drove away.

The male victim did not sustain any injuries during the aggravated robbery.

The first male is described as Caucasian in appearance, approximately 20-years-old, tall with a slim build and short blond hair. He was wearing a black jacket.

The second male is described as Caucasian in appearance, around 175cm (5’9”) tall with a muscular build, and was wearing a white sweater.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the robbery, or may be able to assist police with their investigation 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.

The media had given me the impression that they would have needed a hoodie to commit a crime…
Seems strange….

If thugs just randomly start violating the thuggy dress code, we’re all doomed! Doomed, I tells ya!

What odds on the white sedan being a Commodore?

I googled that watch and it sells for $4,869 in some stores! I wonder if the muggers were just lucky to pick the guy with the expensive watch or if they’d noticed the watch earlier and followed him?

No mention of hoodies or tracksuit pants either. But a white sweater and a black jacket. Doesn’t sound like your average junkies. Rather unusual?

You’re giving these idiots too much credit…..

I’ve got one just liked it that I picked up in Thailand last year for USD 20. Guaranteed genuine by the little bloke in the markets.
