PERTH De­tec­tives need in­for­ma­tion after a 55-year-old man was found with se­ri­ous head in­juries in a carpark. The man was found just after 6pm on Sun­day, Jan­uary 4 in carpark 8 at Crown Casino (next to Cam­field Drive and Charles Pater­son Park). The man is de­scribed as fair-skinned, slim, 175cm-180cm tall, wear­ing blue jeans, blue T-shirt and a black leather jacket. He was last seen seated in a white Dae­woo Le­ganza (pic­tured). A mem­ber of the pub­lic found the man un­con­scious on the ground, and pro­vided first aid un­til St John Am­bu­lance ar­rived. He was taken to Royal Perth Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment and is still re­cov­er­ing. He has no mem­ory of how he got in­jured. STEAL­INGS from cars are still an is­sue and when talk­ing to vic­tims most say they left prop­erty on the front seat be­liev­ing it would be okay to do so, be­cause they were only go­ing to be away from their car for a mo­ment. It is very im­por­tant to un­der­stand that many thieves are op­por­tunis­tic by na­ture and if they see an op­por­tu­nity to steal some­thing they will, whether it is in a locked ve­hi­cle or not. The best ad­vice po­lice can give is to re­move any­thing of value from your car, look, lock and leave. If you do see any­thing sus­pi­cious re­port it to po­lice. – Bel­mont Po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Snr Sgt Sergeant Peter Arancini
