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.

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
