The Police posted a link to a media release on this but, as is so often their way, the link is a dud.
The Canberra Times, however, has picked up the story of three Canberra men and two Yass women attacking another bloke in Wanniassa.
- The ACT Magistrates Court heard Falicia Connors, 18, Harold Connors, 20, Robert Connors, 22, Liza Simpson, 18, and Kentyn Obah, 20, attacked 35-year-old James Andrew Chapman and his friend Amanda Hindmarsh at Malahide Court on Saturday night.
Prosecutors say the five launched an unprovoked assault on Mr Chapman, a neighbour of two of the alleged attackers, at the public housing complex just after 10pm.
Police allege that, when they arrived on the scene, they encountered Ms Hindmarsh, who told the officers, ”They’re throwing a shopping trolley at him. I’m surprised he’s still alive.”
