WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, YOU ARE A ROLE MODEL

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

WHETHER you like it or not; if you're un­aware or in­dif­fer­ent to it or you think you are too old; or even if you don't feel like it to­day, you, yes you, are more than likely a role model for some­one else. That's right, some­body who knows you is likely to be ob­serv­ing how you be­have and how you in­ter­act with oth­ers. This is not some­thing new for par­ents; the eyes of in­quis­i­tive chil­dren are of­ten silently watch­ing your re­la­tion­ships. This begs the ques­tion, are you a pos­i­tive role model for them, in­flu­enc­ing oth­ers for good with your kind-hearted ac­tions? Or are those lit­tle eyes see­ing you ar­gue with hos­til­ity and venom to­wards your part­ner or throw­ing a fist a their face? Are they see­ing you drink to ex­cess or hit the bot­tle hard? Some­times it is good to stop, then think and then act! How will what I do, or say, in­flu­ence oth­ers? – South East Metropoli­tan Com­mu­nity En­gage­ment Co-or­di­na­tor Matt Sharp

1 KEW­DALE AR­SON Squad De­tec­tives are ask­ing for the public’s as­sis­tance re­gard­ing a sus­pi­cious fire in Kew­dale on June 26. About 8.10am, po­lice were no­ti­fied by the Depart­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices of a fire at a prop­erty on Sy­den­ham Street. Ar­son Squad De­tec­tives at­tended the ad­dress and de­ter­mined the fire to be de­lib­er­ately lit. The fire caused about $100,000 dam­age. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent is asked to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.

2 RIVER­VALE ABOUT 5pm on June 3, a man rode his bike up to a taxi parked on Roberts Road in River­vale and at­tempted to break the win­dows. He was able to smash the small tri­an­gu­lar win­dow and opened the door. He then searched through the ve­hi­cle and lo­cated a wal­let in the front con­sole. He took the wal­let and rode off with it. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man (right) who they be­lieve can as­sist them with their in­quiries. He is de­scribed as dark skinned and about 17-20 years old. He had short brown hair and a mous­tache. He was wear­ing a blue jumper, a white base­ball cap with a black rim and white head­phones around his neck.

3 VIC­TO­RIA PARK ABOUT 11am on May 29, a woman en­tered the Town of Vic­to­ria Park of­fice on Shep­per­ton Road. She made her way to an area re­stricted to the public and re­moved a staff mem­ber’s phone and wal­let from her desk and hand­bag. The woman then at­tempted to use a credit card in the stolen wal­let at a su­per­mar­ket in Bent­ley but was un­suc­cess­ful.

4 BUR­SWOOD DE­TEC­TIVES are seek­ing wit­nesses to an in­ci­dent in Bur­swood. About 10.20pm on May 7, a man left Crown Casino on Great Eastern High­way and walked to his ve­hi­cle, a white Toy­ota Aurion, which was parked in the carpark. As he got into his ve­hi­cle, he was ap­proached by two men. One of the men pro­duced a flick knife and de­manded the vic­tim’s prop­erty. Fear­ing for his safety, the man ran from his ve­hi­cle and the two men drove away in it. The ve­hi­cle was later re­cov­ered by po­lice. The first man was de­scribed as dark skinned and about 26-28 years old. He was about 175cm tall and had medium length messy hair. He was wear­ing a white hooded jumper with writ­ing on the chest and a pocket on the front. The sec­ond man was de­scribed as dark skinned with a solid build and about 180-185cm tall. He had cof­fee coloured hair shaved on the sides and longer on top and had a slight mous­tache on his top lip. He was wear­ing a dark coloured zip-up top and grey washed jeans. If you know the iden­tity of these men or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence, make a re­port online or call Crime Stop­pers.
