WE will be out in force dur­ing the school hol­i­days to en­sure schools are not be­ing tar­geted by van­dals. We will be pa­trolling schools reg­u­larly and work­ing with ed­u­ca­tion se­cu­rity of­fi­cers at a time when empty schools are of­ten tar­geted. It is also a timely re­minder for peo­ple to keep their prop­erty se­cure, es­pe­cially in the shop­ping cen­tre carparks. We en­cour­age peo­ple to re­port sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour if they see it. – Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Dowd­ing

BEL­MONT KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives have ar­rested a 65-year-old Bel­mont man and charged him with acts in­tend­ing to cause griev­ous bod­ily harm. It will be al­leged that about 3.10pm on April 4, the man as­saulted a woman who was known to him at a res­i­dence on Somers Street in Bel­mont. The 49-year-old woman was lo­cated by a mem­ber of the public with se­ri­ous in­juries at the cor­ner of Sy­den­ham and Somers streets. The woman was taken by am­bu­lance to Royal Perth Hospi­tal. BENT­LEY PO­LICE are seek­ing as­sis­tance in iden­ti­fy­ing a woman who they be­lieve may be able to as­sist them with a rob­bery in­ci­dent that oc­curred on April 2 in Bent­ley. About 8.25am, a woman en­tered a gro­cery store and se­lected items from the store in­clud­ing milk, cheese and other goods, and placed them in a black bag. When the woman made her way to the counter, at­tempt­ing to only pay for a car­ton of milk, she was chal­lenged by a staff mem­ber who saw other items in her bag. The woman threw the car­ton of milk at the staff mem­ber and left the store with the re­main­ing gro­ceries. The woman is de­scribed as light skinned, 30-40 years old, ap­prox­i­mately 175cm tall with shoul­der length brown hair. Quote ref­er­ence num­ber 8476 when ring­ing Crime Stop­pers.
