STILL LOTS OF THEFTS FROM CARS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

SEX As­sault Squad of­fi­cers charged a 28-year-old Can­ning Vale man after an in­ci­dent on Septem­ber 7 Around 4.20am a group of five adults hailed a taxi on Al­bany High­way in Vic­to­ria Park. Four adults got into the back of the taxi and a 28-year-old woman got into the front pas­sen­ger seat. It is al­leged dur­ing the jour­ney the taxi driver in­de­cently as­saulted the woman. The taxi driver has been charged with six counts of in­de­cent as­sault and is due to ap­pear in the Perth Mag­is­trates Court on Septem­ber 24. DE­SPITE re­peated warn­ings for car own­ers or pas­sen­gers not to leave items of value inside when un­oc­cu­pied, we are still see­ing prop­erty stolen. Most of those cars bro­ken into have been parked in a va­ri­ety of lo­ca­tions. Ar­eas to avoid are back­streets and re­mote ar­eas of car parks. At the same time, no area is im­mune to theft. Avoid leav­ing any valu­ables inside and en­sure the alarm is ac­ti­vated. Wallets or purses con­tain­ing credit cards are eas­ily fraud­u­lently used in a short time­frame. If you have been a vic­tim of crime, re­port it as we can de­ploy our re­sources into those ar­eas most af­fected. Hope­fully pos­i­tive re­sults will follow.

He called two other staff mem­bers to as­sist him, and all three were then forced to lie on the ground with the of­fend­ers hold­ing a firearm and a knife. The two de­manded cash and were given an amount of money be­fore run­ning out the back door of the cafe. One of the men is de­scribed as be­ing of a stocky build, wear­ing a red hooded jumper. The other was also of a stocky build and was wear­ing a black hooded jumper. Any­one who can as­sist in this in­ves­ti­ga­tion is asked to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
