Po­lice in­ves­ti­gate road rage in­ci­dent and theft

Myrtleford Times - - News -

PO­LICE are con­tin­u­ing to in­ves­ti­gate a road rage in­ci­dent at Mt Buf­falo on Au­gust 26 that saw dam­age caused to two ve­hi­cles.

A Myrtle­ford woman driv­ing a black Holden Com­modore sedan, and a Point Cook man in a red Holden Cap­tiva, were in­volved in ver­bal con­fronta­tion in the car park at Dingo Dell be­fore the ar­gu­ment es­ca­lated and saw both ve­hi­cles col­lide with each other on two oc­ca­sions.

Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Bren­dan Acham­mer of Myrtle­ford po­lice said the in­ci­dent ended when the fe­male driver left the scene.

“We have a case where one per­son has ini­tially of­fended and then the vic­tim has be­come an of­fender as well,” he said.

“Our un­der­stand­ing is that both peo­ple were cir­cu­lat­ing look­ing for a car park at a time when spa­ces were at a premium.

“There was a park be­come avail­able and the man has done a three-point turn to try and get there first, which ap­pears to be not to cour­te­ous to the Myrtle­ford woman.

“The woman got out of her car and con­fronted the other driver and then hopped back in her car and in frus­tra­tion rammed the front of the man’s car, mak­ing rea­son­able im­pact.

“She has then done to drive past and that’s when the se­cond col­li­sion has hap­pened with the man ac­cel­er­at­ing into the side of her car.

“There was quite a crowd who wit­nessed it and have helped us with our investigations but if any­one has fur­ther mo­bile phone or dash cam footage or in­for­ma­tion we’d love to her from them.”

Ldg Snr Cons Ach­mamer said the Myrtle­ford woman will be for­mally in­ter­viewed tomorrow.

Myrtle­ford po­lice are also in­ves­ti­gat­ing the theft of a keg of beer from Ex­cel Freight last Thurs­day night.

Sergeant Paul Evans said three males were caught on CCTV footage en­ter­ing the back of the Stan­dish Street business at about 9.35pm and re­mov­ing a keg from a pal­let.

Any­one who may have seen the men act­ing sus­pi­ciously con­tact Myrtle­ford po­lice on (03) 5752 1003.
