Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - STREET WATCH -

ABOUT 6.50pm on April 16, a woman boarded a Transperth bus at the Welling­ton Street bus­port head­ing to Can­ning­ton train sta­tion. Three men boarded the bus at the same time as the vic­tim. At 7.10pm, the bus pre­pared to stop on Rut­land Av­enue in Carlisle. One of the men reached out and tried to snatch the vic­tim’s mo­bile phone out of her hands as he passed by. The vic­tim was dragged from her seat by the phone which was wres­tled from her hands. An­other man grabbed the vic­tim’s back­pack and pulled on it vi­o­lently. The vic­tim was pulled down the aisle, on to the steps of the bus and out on to the road sur­face through the open doors fall­ing heav­ily to the ground. Po­lice have re­leased CCTV im­ages of two of the men who they be­lieve can as­sist them in their in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
