THIEVES took for­eign cur­rency and valu­ables worth $1400 when they bur­gled a home at Carr Place be­tween 7.30am and 6.45pm on Oc­to­ber 4. “There was Aus­tralian dol­lars and Bri­tish pounds, and an iPad and Kin­dle taken,” Se­nior Sergeant Paul Vo­jkovich said. It is sus­pected the thieves were able to en­ter the pre­vi­ously locked home when they found a door key left in a let­ter­box.

A GROUP of four to five youths tam­pered with a scooter and stole an­other of the ma­chines in an un­der­ground carpark on Carr Street on Oc­to­ber 3. “They used a golf club to reach through the car park’s gate and punch the open but­ton,” Sergeant Colin Sher­rit said. The youths were de­scribed as be­ing aged 13 to 17.

ELEC­TRON­ICS were taken when thieves got into a Welling­ton Street apart­ment overnight on Oc­to­ber 4. “They took the goods from the bed­room and the liv­ing room,” Se­nior Sergeant Ange Tip­ping said. Sgt Tip­ping said the thieves’ en­try ap­peared to have been made easy be­cause there were no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances.

A MAN (37) has been slapped with three charges of in­de­cent as­sault af­ter al­legedly slap­ping the bot­toms of three women in Perth and on the Mid­land train on Septem­ber 19. Se­nior Sergeant Davis said it would be al­leged the man en­tered a make-up shop in the NX100 mall in the Perth CBD, be­tween Hay Street and St Georges Ter­race, and walked past a fe­male as­sis­tant about 12.15pm that day. “He leant for­ward and in­de­cently as­saulted the vic­tim by us­ing his right hand to slap the vic­tim on the but­tock,” Sgt Davis said. The man left af­ter he and the women had a brief con­ver­sa­tion. The man then al­legedly slapped the but­tocks of a woman who was trav­el­ling on a train to Mid­land near the Claise­brook sta­tion at 5.51pm. Sgt Davis said it would be al­leged the man con­ducted the as­sault as he leant on a pas­sen­ger pole in the train's car­riage. “The vic­tim turned around and said 'that's not ap­pro­pri­ate',” Sgt Davis said. It is al­leged a third woman had her bot­tom slapped by the man as she left a Mid­land-bound train at the May­lands train sta­tion at 5.58pm. The man will be sum­monsed to ap­pear at Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Oc­to­ber 12.
