Wood­lands wooden door smashed in

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

ABOUT 10.15pm on Novem­ber 9, two thieves smashed down the door of a home on Teak­wood Av­enue in Wood­lands.

The of­fend­ers cracked the wooden door while the oc­cu­pants were in­side.

They went to in­ves­ti­gate the noise and of­fend­ers re­alised peo­ple were in the house.

A 60-year-old res­i­dent chased them out of the house and one of the of­fend­ers punched the man be­fore es­cap­ing in a ve­hi­cle wait­ing nearby. This of­fender is de­scribed as hav­ing a solid build with a beard and was wear­ing a tank top and black shorts. Noth­ing was stolen from the house. Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Haydn Far­row said the po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing foren­sic ev­i­dence and in­quir­ing with neigh­bours.

“If you hear some­thing, get on the phone to the po­lice straight away and do not try and con­front in­trud­ers your­self; your own safety is para­mount,” Snr Sgt Far­row said.
