Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -


PO­LICE are look­ing for a man (right) to as­sist their in­quiry into an in­ci­dent in South Perth in July. A man was driv­ing his ve­hi­cle along Mends Street when he ap­proached the traf­fic lights about 3pm on July 31. A group of five men ap­proached the ve­hi­cle and tried to open the doors to the ve­hi­cle, bang­ing on the win­dows and kick­ing the doors, caus­ing dam­age. As the lights turned green, the man drove his ve­hi­cle away and at­tended a po­lice sta­tion to re­port the in­ci­dent. Po­lice have re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man whom they be­lieve can as­sist them. If you know the iden­tity of this per­son or have any in­for­ma­tion about this of­fence make a re­port on­line at crimestop­pers Or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.


KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives have charged two peo­ple af­ter an in­ci­dent on Septem­ber 17 at the Bel­mont Fo­rum carpark. It is al­leged that the vic­tim, who was trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia, parked her car in a car bay and had her boot up while she was near the front of the car. A blue Nis­san X-Trail ap­proached and stopped be­hind her car and a male and fe­male got out of the car while a third per­son re­mained in the driver’s seat. The fe­male al­legedly grabbed the vic­tim’s phone from the back seat of the car and ran back to the wait­ing X-Trail. The vic­tim chased the fe­male and jumped into the X-Trail while try­ing to get her phone back and the car was driven off with her inside. The male reached back from the front seat and al­legedly punched the vic­tim in the face. The vic­tim gained pos­ses­sion of her phone and at­tempted to get out but po­lice claim the male punched her in the face twice more while the fe­male of­fender yanked the vic­tim’s bag from her shoul­der. The vic­tim suf­fered a bro­ken cheek­bone with three frac­tures around her nose, cheek­bone and eye and has un­der­gone surgery to re­pair the in­juries. Kens­ing­ton De­tec­tives have charged a 27-year-old fe­male and a 30-year-old male, who re­side at the same ad­dress in Bel­mont, re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent.

They were each charged with ag­gra­vated rob­bery, ag­gra­vated assault with in­tent to rob and assault oc­ca­sion­ing bod­ily harm. WATER­FORD PO­LICE are seek­ing the pub­lic’s as­sis­tance to iden­tify a man act­ing sus­pi­ciously in Water­ford last week.

THE most im­por­tant times for you to be vig­i­lant are dur­ing school hol­i­days as schools are unat­tended and there­fore more vul­ner­a­ble than usual to crime. If you hear un­usual noises from a school, such as glass break­ing or bang­ing noises, this might mean peo­ple are up to no good. Look for un­usual ve­hi­cles parked at a school on week­ends or dur­ing hol­i­days. Watch for groups "hang­ing around" on school grounds. – Se­nior Sergeant Peter Arancini
