All-Aus­tralian hero chases bag thieves

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

UN­PER­TURBED by a lack of speedy footwear, Tony proved Aus­tralians will have a go at just about any­thing.

Wear­ing thongs, he tried to chase down three bike ban­dits who al­legedly snatched bags from a hand­ful of women at Coffs Creek about noon.

Tony, from Coffs Har­bour, said three teenagers were do­ing the wrong thing when they should have been at school. “I just saw them tak­ing off, with a woman chas­ing them,” Tony said.

Tony said he chased the teenagers from Dol­phin Marine Magic to the Hog­bin Dr round­about but lost them af­ter they took off into bush.

Po­lice from Coffs/Clarence Lo­cal Area Com­mand were called and an in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der way.

CAP­TAIN PLUGGER: Tony, from Coffs Har­bour, chased three bag snatch­ers on bi­cy­cles in his thongs.
