At 8.10am on Monday, a man wearing a balaclava and another wearing a cap en- tered a club in Bevin Ave, armed with knives. The club was not open for business but the men confronted two staff on the prem- ises. One staff member was restrained while the other was forced to open the safe. No one was injured during the incident. The men fled with cash in a gun-metal grey Holden Vectra sedan. The car was driven from the car park into Bevin Ave and last seen heading southbound along William St. The man in the balaclava was also wearing white gloves, black track pants, a green sloppy joe with hood and carrying a black Nike bag. The second man was wearing a blue and white chequered flannelette shirt, black cargos and a Diesel brand black and white cap. Burwood crime manager Detective-Chief Inspector Glen Fitzgerald, leading the in- vestigation has appealed for any witnesses. ''In particular I believe that there were four cyclists in the area of the club who might have seen this vehicle entering or leaving the club car park,'' he said. ''The cyclists are not considered suspects but might have vital information that can assist investigators.'' Phone Burwood police on 9745 8499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 2 A TEENAGE girl was grabbed by a man while she was jogging in Concord. The 15-year-old was running along Wellbank St at 6.15pm on Friday when a car with two men pulled up behind her. The man in the passenger seat got out, spoke to her and grabbed her by the arm. But when a passer-by on the other side of the road noticed what was going on and yelled out, the girl managed to pull away. The two men then drove off. Police are looking for two men of African appearance. The passenger is described as about 25 years of age, 175cm tall, slim with oily skin and wearing a dark T-shirt. The driver has been described as obese and about 25 years of age. They were driving a black two-door hatchback with tinted windows and a red P-plate attached. Police would also like to speak to the man who witnessed the incident. Witnesses should call Burwood police on 9745 8499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 3 THE strong winds on Monday felled trees and damaged roofs of some houses in the Canada Bay area. Two rescue teams from Canada Bay SES responded to 11 requests for help. The most serious incident was in Friend Ave, Five Dock, where a tree split and fell onto a townhouse, damaging the side wall and roof and the front fence. In nearby Regatta Rd, a small tree blocked the footpath. Down the road in Drummoyne, two large branches fell onto one apartment block while at another Drummoyne house a palm tree was uprooted, just missing the family car and damaging the mail box. For assistance in floods and storms call the SES on 132 500. 4 ASHFIELD Police are investigating a robbery at a granny flat in Queen St, Hurlstone Park on Monday night.

Witnesses should call Ashfield Police on 9797 4099. Put screws on plate thieves INNER West drivers should head to Five Dock on Tuesday to have free anti- theft screws fitted to their car numberplates -- and fill up with cheaper petrol. Burwood police and NRMA roadside assist tech- nicians will be fitting the 1000 sets of screws at the Coles Express Service Station on Parramatta Rd from 10am next Tuesday. The screws are available for all vehicle makes and models and will be installed for free. The screws' locking mech- anism prevents thieves from being able to remove numberplates with a screw- driver. The service station has also offered to reduce the cost of petrol by 2c per litre for car owners who take advantage of the screw replacement program. Numberplate thefts have increased in the Burwood police command. weekly news ALDI super 6 you can't beat ALDI for freshness and value Sliced Mushrooms 250g 60c per 100g Seedless Watermelon per kg 99c per kg Strawberries 250g 40c per 100g Bananas per kg $1.69 per kg Truss Tomatoes per kg $2.99 per kg Mangoes each $1.99 per unit 99c $149 $199ea $169 99c $299 $329 Collapsible Garden Water Tank • Marine grade PVC bladder • Clip together zinc-plated tubular steel frame • Mesh protective cover • Easy to assemble • Includes adaptor • 150cm tall • 120cm diameter smarter shopping aldi.com.au prices from 07/10/08 to 13/10/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
