LOOK AND LOCK BEFORE YOU LEAVE
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
