KEEP SCREEN DOORS LOCKED

Comment News (Gosnells) - - Street Watch -

I'm no cli­ma­tol­o­gist, nor do I have any sta­tis­ti­cal ev­i­dence to back me up, but in my opin­ion the re­cent win­ter mea­sured 'ex­treme' on the mis­er­able scale. Now that there's the slight­est hint of warmer weather, I like let­ting a lit­tle sun­shine and warm breeze come in through my front fly­screen door. Un­for­tu­nately crooks see an un­locked fly­screen door or open win­dow as an op­por­tu­nity to sneak in and steal your stuff, even when you're at home. Po­lice al­ways see an in­crease in this type of op­por­tunis­tic theft, where crooks get into homes and units through un­locked doors and win­dows, in the warmer months. You can take sim­ple mea­sures, such as en­sur­ing your front screen­door is al­ways locked, even when you're home, to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce your chance of be­ing a vic­tim of this type of crime. – Sergeant Nathan Tren­berth

AR­MADALE

Ar­madale de­tec­tives have charged a 26-year-old Madding­ton man af­ter an al­leged as­sault on Gir­raween Street, Ar­madale, on Oc­to­ber 27. At 9.10pm the man was in­volved in a ver­bal al­ter­ca­tion with a woman be­fore driv­ing his Mit­subishi Lancer into a parked Honda Civic. Po­lice say the man then as­saulted the Honda’s 25-year-old male driver. He was charged with two counts of un­law­ful act with in­tent to harm and one count of ag­gra­vated as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing bod­ily harm. Po­lice investigations con­tinue. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to call Crime Stop­pers.

BECKENHAM Po­lice have charged a 31-year-old Beckenham man af­ter he evaded po­lice on Novem­ber 2. Po­lice say they tried to stop the man’s Holden Ac­claim on Kala­munda Road, High Wy­combe, at 9.50pm but he failed to stop. They lost sight of the car but saw it again later on Ridge Hill Road, Goose­berry Hill. When po­lice went to talk to the man he drove off, lead­ing them through Goose­berry Hill, He­lena Val­ley and Mid­land be­fore he was stopped by a tyre de­fla­tion de­vice in Bellevue. The driver ran away but was ar­rested shortly af­ter. Po­lice seized an axe un­der the driver’s seat. They said the 31-year-old fe­male pas­sen­ger also had her four-year-old son un­re­strained on her lap in the car. The man has been charged with of­fences, in­clud­ing reck­less driv­ing to es­cape pur­suit by po­lice, pos­sess­ing a pro­hib­ited drug and car­ry­ing an ar­ti­cle with the in­tent to cause fear.

GOS­NELLS Po­lice need the pub­lic’s help about an in­ci­dent out­side a Ge­orge Street deli on Au­gust 29. Po­lice say a young girl went to the store with friends at 5.40pm and was pay­ing for items when an un­known man ap­proached and spoke to her. The man fol­lowed her out­side and put his hand on her shoul­der. Af­ter a short time she walked away and the man went and sat in a nearby ve­hi­cle be­fore driv­ing off. The ve­hi­cle is de­scribed as a grey small/medium hatch­back/ wagon. Po­lice want to speak to the man (pic­tured) who they be­lieve can help with their in­quiries. He is de­scribed as be­ing fair-skinned with a medium build, ap­prox­i­mately 35 years of age with short brown hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing a yel­low high-viz shirt, red, black and white adi­das jacket and dark pants.

JARRAHDALE Po­lice are seek­ing wit­nesses to a Jarrahdale car crash that killed a 42-year-old man on Oc­to­ber 31. The vic­tim was driv­ing a red Honda Ac­cord south on Al­bany High­way when it col­lided with two trucks trav­el­ling in the op­po­site di­rec­tion. The Seville Grove man died at the scene. The truck driv­ers were not in­jured. Of­fi­cers wish to speak with any­one who may have seen the Honda trav­el­ling on the high­way be­tween Ar­madale and Jarrahdale prior to the crash.

MADDING­TON About 10.50pm on Oc­to­ber 21, po­lice re­ceived a re­port of a bur­glary in progress at a res­i­dence on Vir­ginia Av­enue. The of­fend­ers left the scene in a black Holden Ad­ven­tra. The ve­hi­cle was lo­cated and of­fi­cers tried to stop it, but the driver failed to stop. A short time later the ve­hi­cle was sighted by an­other po­lice unit, and the Po­lice Air Wing was called in. The car was mon­i­tored by the po­lice helicopter crew and a stinger de­vice was de­ployed on Hale Road in Wat­tle Grove, de­flat­ing two tyres. The ve­hi­cle was aban­doned near the in­ter­sec­tion of Tonkin High­way and Welsh­pool Road and three oc­cu­pants of the ve­hi­cle fled. One of the oc­cu­pants, a 27-year-old man from For­rest­field, was taken into cus­tody af­ter he tried to hide in a tree and re­ceived a bite wound from a po­lice dog. A 19-year-old man from Ar­madale was taken into cus­tody in the rear yard of a prop­erty on Welsh­pool Road East, while a 19- year-old man from Port Kennedy was ar­rested a day later on Welsh­pool Road, Kelm­scott.

CAMILLO Ar­madale po­lice are ask­ing for the pub­lic’s help as they in­ves­ti­gate a steal­ing in­ci­dent at a shop­ping cen­tre on West­field Road on Oc­to­ber 9.
