Tyre Iron Muggers

By johnboy 15 February 2011 9

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Macgregor yesterday (Monday 15, February).

Around 12.15pm a 21-year-old man was walking his dog along Hayward Street. When he reached the Florey Drive bridge a group of five males came out from underneath and approached him.

One of the offenders threatened him with a tyre iron, demanding he hand over his belongings. The victim refused and the offender attempted to hit him with the tyre iron. The victim handed over his belongings and the group ran off along the walkway under the bridge, heading towards Latham.

One of the offenders is described as Caucasian, aged in his early 20s, with black messy hair and a moustache. He was wearing a white T-shirt with writing on the front and blue jeans.

Police ask anyone who was in the area at that time and may have seen people matching the description to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

There seems to be a lot of low level crime recently (street muggings and theft)

I made the same point recently after the assault on the two blokes by a gang of thugs at a Maccas in Tuggeranong. In reply someone suggested that perhaps I work for A Current Affair.

Sigh. 🙁

Well, there’s goes my freedom. Can’t take me kid to cricket training on pushbikes seeing as this pathway is the the only route. Too dangerous to go for evening walks. Why don’t we all stop walking altogether and take the car out for exercise, it’s safer. Give everyone the right to defend themselves with sidearms and see how the petty crime rates drop to nothing. You will see an amazing increase in the number of self defense claims though.

Yeah, because there’s no petty crime in the USA, right? Canberra is overall a very safe city. No need for hysterics every time a crime is reported in the media.

Adding more guns to the community is madness. Places like the US have HEAPS of gun crime compared with Australia.
