The vic­tim was punched in the face by one of the men and re­ceived a cut lip and blood nose. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man (right) who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The man is de­scribed as be­ing dark-skinned with short dark hair, a dark mous­tache, of solid build and aged 25 to 30 years, wear­ing a pur­ple jumper that had grey stripes and light brown pants.

The best ad­vice is to have a friend or trusted neigh­bour check on your place daily and do the lit­tle things like col­lect the mail and pick up the pa­per that is de­liv­ered each morn­ing. It’s im­por­tant your house does not ap­pear va­cant. Just as im­por­tant is the need to pro­vide a trusted friend with your con­tact de­tails, just in case some­one, like the po­lice, need to make con­tact with you. Fi­nally, if you are the fam­ily friend who has been en­trusted to look af­ter a friend's house , re­port any sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour im­me­di­ately to po­lice on 131444. – Bel­mont Lo­cal Polic­ing Team Of­fi­cer in Charge Se­nior Sergeant Peter Arancini on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, where all calls are strictly con­fi­den­tial, and re­wards are of­fered.

PARK TWO armed ban­dits ter­rorised four vic­tims in 10 min­utes in Vic­to­ria Park. About 9.20pm on Sun­day, Au­gust 31, the vic­tims were in a ve­hi­cle that was pulled over on Al­bany High­way. Two men walked up to the pas­sen­ger side of the car and opened the pas­sen­ger side door. Both pro­duced knives and de­manded the vic­tims hand over their hand­bags. The men took cash, mo­bile phones and a GPS unit be­fore walk­ing away to­wards Kent Street. About 10 min­utes later, the same two men ap­proached a man and woman walk­ing along Can­ter­bury Ter­race near Al­bany High­way. The two men stopped about 5m in front of them be­fore one of the of­fend­ers pro­duced a knife and held it at the vic­tim’s chest de­mand­ing his things. The sec­ond of­fender tried to grab a hand­bag from the woman, but she re­fused to let go, prompt­ing the man with the knife to stab the male vic­tim in the chest with the tip of the knife. This caused a small in­jury to the vic­tim. Both vic­tims ran away. The first male is de­scribed as be­ing dark-skinned, of slim build, about 170cm tall, 16 to 18 years of age, short dark hair and clean shaven. He was wear­ing a white striped sin­glet and had a hooded jumper wrapped around both hands. The sec­ond male is de­scribed as be­ing dark-skinned, of chubby build, about 170cm tall and 16 to 18 years of age, wear­ing a red hooded top. If you know the iden­tity of these per­sons or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers on
