ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a roadside assault and robbery that occurred in Lyons this morning (Friday February 13).

About 9.10am, while stationary at the intersection of Hindmarsh Drive and Melrose Drive eastbound, the passenger of a red Ford Ranger approached a driver of a maroon Toyota Corolla, opening the driver’s door and verbally abusing him.

The 19-year-old passenger of the Ford Ranger attempted to punch the other driver and grabbed a necklace from the victim’s neck, returning to his car with the necklace.

An off duty police member detained the 19-year-old until police arrived a short time later.

Police are appealing for other drivers who may have witnessed the incident, as it occurred during peak hour traffic at a busy intersection, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via Information can be provided anonymously.
