8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 MB NEWS Woman unharmed in home burglary CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 1 POLICE are warning people to lock their windows and doors after an Ashfield woman came face to face with a burglar in her home last Tuesday morning. At 9.15am the woman, 27, heard noises coming from the bathroom of her Orpington St home and went to investigate. She was confronted by the burglar who grabbed her arm and demanded money, police said. The man left the house by the front door after ransacking the house taking cash, a laptop computer and jewellery. The woman was not injured during the break-in. The thief has been described to police as being of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean appearance, 30 years of age, with short black hair, of medium complexion and thin. He was wearing a white jumper and black knee-length pants. Police say he may have entered the property through a window. Ashfield crime manager Det-Insp Tim Calman has reminded people to be mindful of home security in the summer months. ''While a nice summer breeze coming through the window while you sleep is lovely, you might also need to ask yourself if you are providing a criminal with an opportunity,'' he said. ''Generally speaking, a lot of break-ins are opportunistic so if you are leaving the premises for a time or even considering an afternoon nap, make sure you have locked your doors and windows.'' Anyone with information about this incident should contact Ashfield police on 9797 4099 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Home security and other crime preven- tion advice can be found at www.police.nsw.gov.au/community--- issues/crime---prevention 2 POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a hit and run in Hurlstone Park on Monday. Just after midday, the 61-year-old man was crossing Old Canterbury Rd when he was hit by a red Holden utility with a red tray which was travelling north at the time. The man fell head first onto the road and suffered lacerations to his head, arms and legs and a shoulder injury. He was taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition. Police have been told that the driver of the red utility who failed to stop at the crash scene, turned left onto Hanks St and was last seen heading towards Queen St. Anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed the incident should phone Ashfield police on 9797 4099 or Crime Stop- pers on 1800 333 000. 3 POST mortem examinations of two bodies found in a unit at Auburn last week have established sharp force injury as the cause of both deaths. About 6pm on Thursday, November 13, police were called to a large unit block after a resident discovered the bodies of two women in a bedroom. The women, believed to be aged in their late 20s or early 30s, had suffered visible signs of injuries and their deaths are being treated as suspicious. Detectives from the State Crime Com- mand's Homicide Squad and Flemington Local Area Command received the cause of death on Friday night. Further forensic tests are being carried out to formally identify the two women. Meanwhile, police are making inquiries with the Immigration and Citizenship De- partment, as well as the Chinese Consulate in Sydney. Strike Force Community detectives can- vassed the area for clues on Friday night. Detectives have spoken to a large number of residents of the multi-tower complex. Anyone with information about the women's deaths is urged to contact Strike Force Community at Auburn Police Station on 9646 8699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
