Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

A TRANSPERTH bus was left with $10,000 dam­age af­ter be­ing at­tacked in Yangebup. Po­lice said a large group of youths flagged down the bus, which was head­ing to the Cock­burn train sta­tion, on Yangebup Road about 10.45pm on April 23. When the bus stopped at the in­ter­sec­tion of North Lake Road and Osprey Drive, one of the youths ac­ti­vated the emer­gency door re­lease, which some of the pas­sen­gers used to get off the bus. As the driver moved through the in­ter­sec­tion, a rock was thrown at the front wind­screen, shat­ter­ing the glass. More rocks were then thrown at the ve­hi­cle while those in­side kicked at the win­dows, with some even us­ing the emer­gency ham­mer to cause more dam­age. The youths then fled. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000, or re­port the in­for­ma­tion on­line at www.crimestop­pers wa.com.au.
