LOOK OUT FOR THE VUL­NER­A­BLE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

ABOUT 7.30pm on Novem­ber 17 po­lice re­ceived a re­port that a man was slumped be­hind the wheel of a ve­hi­cle at the in­ter­sec­tion of Great East­ern High­way and Brighton Road in River­vale. Of­fi­cers al­legedly found the man in the driver’s seat of the idling ve­hi­cle. He was taken to Can­ning­ton Po­lice Sta­tion and breath-tested. He al­legedly recorded a read­ing of more than seven times the le­gal limit. The 33-year-old man of Bel­mont has been charged with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence. He will ap­pear in court at a later date. YOU prob­a­bly read the news last week and were hor­ri­fied just as I was about the vi­o­lence used on one of our el­derly cit­i­zens. Thanks to as­sis­tance from the com­mu­nity, me­dia and some clever po­lice work, all four al­leged of­fend­ers were caught and charged. There are many vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and one of the key mes­sages the South East Met­ro­pol­i­tan Dis­trict Com­mu­nity En­gage­ment Unit pro­motes is that all peo­ple have the right to feel safe. Re­spect for each other, look­ing out for our vul­ner­a­ble com­mu­nity mem­bers and be­ing de­cent hu­man be­ings will go a long way to mak­ing this fes­tive sea­son peace­ful for all.

A 71-YEAR-OLD WOMAN was left shaken but un­harmed after her bag was snatched on Novem­ber 18. The sus­pect was wear­ing all black. Call 9474 7555 with any in­for­ma­tion.

PO­LICE are look­ing for a 183cm tall male with light skin after he held up United Fuel on Or­rong Road on Novem­ber 16. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call po­lice and quote 641465.

A RE­SPONSE unit tried to stop a car on Novem­ber 15, about 10.30am. The fe­male driver al­legedly did not stop and took po­lice on a jour­ney up the Mitchell Free­way and into the north­ern sub­urbs be­fore abandoning the car and run­ning off. She was ar­rested shortly after. The ve­hi­cle was un­reg­is­tered and her li­cence was sus­pended. She faces a string of se­ri­ous charges.

ABOUT 4pm on Oc­to­ber 11, a male and fe­male en­tered a liquor store on Bel­gravia Street. The man picked up a car­ton of Jack Daniels and Cola cans val­ued at $95 and the cou­ple left the store mak­ing no at­tempt to pay for the al­co­hol. About the same time on Oc­to­ber 13, the same male and fe­male en­tered the liquor store again. This time the male picked up two car­tons of Jack Daniels and Cola cans val­ued at $170 and both again left the store mak­ing no at­tempt to pay for the al­co­hol. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man­and woman who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. The man is de­scribed as dark skinned and about 18-20 years-old. He is about 177cm tall with a slim build and short black hair. The woman is de­scribed as dark-skinned and about 18-20 years-old. She is about 170cm tall with a medium build and brown hair. If you know the iden­tity of th­ese peo­ple or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence, make a re­port on­line or call Crime Stop­pers. Quote Ref­er­ence Num­ber 7408.
