At 2.30am on Saturday, police went to Burwood Park after reports of a brawl. They found two brothers, aged 26 and 16, from Burwood, bleeding with head injuries. They were taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where it was discovered the 26-year-old man had suffered bleeding to his brain and a fracture to the right side of his face. He was transferred to the intensive care unit and remains in a critical but stable condition. The 16-year-old fractured a cheekbone and has been released from hospital. Burwood detectives believe the pair were assaulted during an attempted robbery. On Monday they arrested a 19-year-old man at St Mary's Railway Station. He has been charged with robbery with wounding and intent to commit grievous bodily harm. Police are looking several other people in connection with the incident and are ap- pealing for witnesses to phone Burwood Police on 9745 8499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. 2 TWO teenage P-platers have had their four-wheel-drives confiscated after allegedly street racing at nearly twice the speed limit in Flemington on Saturday morning. Police were patrolling Parramatta Rd at 12.45am when they allegedly saw a red Honda CRV and a black Mitsubishi Pajero travelling at high speed alongside each other. Police allege the two 4WDs reached speeds of up to 115km/h in a sign-posted 60km/h zone. As the vehicles approached the intersec- tion of John St, Lidcombe, police signalled for the cars to pull over. Police say both cars had red P-Plates and there were two passengers in the Honda which was driven by a 19-year-old Toongabbie man Both he and the 17-year-old Strathfield man driving the Pajero were P1 licence holders. The teenagers were charged with street racing, driving in a dangerous manner, exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h and negligent driving. The Toongabbie man was also charged with not complying with P1 restrictions on passengers under 21 years. They will face Burwood Court on November 11. The 4WDs were confiscated by police. 3 A 24-YEAR-OLD Croydon Park man was glassed in a city nightclub on Friday. The incident happened at 11.15pm after the man got into an argument with another man in the Oxford St nightspot. Police have been told that during the altercation, the second man grabbed a bottle and struck the Croydon Park man across the face, before punching him in the head a number of times. The Inner West man's forehead was injured and he had to receive eight stitches at St Vincent's Hospital. A Lane Cove man, 20, was arrested at the scene and later charged with reckless wounding. He has been granted conditional bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on November 17. 4 A MAN was left unconscious with facial fractures and a head injury when he crashed from his BMX bicycle at Five Dock skate park on Saturday. Ambulance, police and an NRMA CareFlight medical team rushed to treat the Sutherland man when friends called emerg- ency services at 6.20pm. The NRMA CareFlight doctor said the 42-year-old man's riding helmet and protec- tive clothing saved him from further injury. The man crashed over the handle bars and landed face first onto concrete. He was unconscious for about five min- utes. The medical staff stabilised the man who was taken by road ambulance to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he was in a serious but stable condition on arrival. Roundabout way to avoid prangs ONE in three Inner West drivers are confused about roundabout rules, accord- ing to NRMA Insurance. New research has found only 66 per cent of respon- dents know how to give way at roundabouts. The biggest misconcep- tion is that drivers should give way to the right when cars that reach the round- about first actually have right of way. Last year, NRMA paid out 177 round- about claims in the Inner West. NRMA Insurance oper- ations manager Carlo Russo said motorists should give way to all traffic on the roundabout, not just what is on the right. weekly news 8GB Multimedia Player • Aspect ratio: 16:9 • Digital voice recording • FM radio with built-in speaker • Supports memory card expansion up to 2GB • Video format supports: MPEG4, AVI, RMVB, RM • Audio format support: MP3/WMA/FLAC/APE/AAC • Image format support: JPEG/BMP/GIF Digital HD Camcorder • 5.0 megapixel • LED video light technology • HD video resolution (1280 x 720) • 10x optical zoom • 3.0" LCD colour display • 4x digital zoom • 2x lithium-ion batteries • Supports SD cards up to 8GB $129 $349 3" widescreen TFT display includes AC charger includes 4GB SD Card Mushrooms 500g $5.98 per kg Sundowner Apples 1kg $1.49 per kg Valencia Oranges 3kg 67c per kg Potatoes 2kg $1.00 per kg $299 $149 $199 $199 3kg 2kg smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 28/10/08 to 03/1 1/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
