8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 15, 2009 MB NEWS Motorcyclist killed on Parramatta Rd CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 1 A P-PLATER motorcyclist died after being thrown from his bike in Summer Hill on Saturday night. The 27-year-old man was riding west along Parramatta Rd on a Suzuki 750, when he lost control and was thrown from the bike onto a bollard near the intersection of Dover St, police say. A doctor, who was travelling behind the motorcyclist, stopped and attempted to revive him. Ambulance staff also treated the victim but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The westbound lanes of Parramatta Rd were closed for several hours while police examined the scene. They will include their findings in a report for the coroner. 2 FOUR teenagers have been charged over a knife-point robbery at Lidcombe last week. Shortly before 6.30pm on Thursday, a 21-year-old man was approached by four teenagers while walking through the rail underpass between Church and Bridge streets. It is alleged one of the teenagers produced a knife and threatened the man, who handed over his wallet. The teenagers then fled in the direction of nearby basketball courts. The man called police who came to the scene and found the four young males nearby. By following them on foot and setting up a perimeter, police were able to arrest the four teenagers. Police also say they located the reported stolen property and seized a sharpened tool. The teenagers -- two aged 14 and two aged 15 -- were taken to Auburn Police Station for questioning. They were each charged with robbery in company and released on strict conditional bail to appear in Parramatta Children's Court on January 29. 3 POLICE are appealing for witnesses to an armed robbery of an appliance store in Auburn on Sunday. About 5.25pm two men forced entry into the Parramatta Rd retail outlet, armed with a gun and a knife. One of the men approached the cash register and pointed the gun at three people standing beside it. The second man then jumped the counter and demanded money. A sum of money was taken from the till. The men then demanded to be taken to the store safe, assaulting one of the trio along the way. They stole an amount of money from the safe and fled the scene. Police from Flemington Local Area Com- mand are searching for the men. The first is described as white/European, aged about 25 to 30 years. He is 180cm to 186cm tall and has a heavy build and blue eyes.
