About 1.19am on January 27 when the Indian man was at a bus stop waiting to catch a Night Rider, he was approached by two teenagers of Aboriginal appearance. The youths made racial comments to the victim then struck him in the face with a broken bottle. The man was taken to Concord Hospital where he received treatment. The offenders ran off before the police arrived. 3 A NEWINGTON man was attacked near his apartment after two men demanded money. On Sunday at 4.30pm when the victim got off a bus at Newington and started walking towards his unit he was approached by a man in his early 20s demanding money. The offender then produced a 13cm knife and after a short struggle the victim received a 7cm deep wound to his hand. A second man then grabbed the victim from behind and punched him. The victim refused to go to hospital and by the time police arrived the two offenders fled. 4 A MAN who was repeatedly assaulted in his car on Sunday afternoon was forced to hand over a sum of money. When the 40-year-old victim was sitting in the driver seat of his Mazda 3 in a car park in Henley Rd, Flemington, he was grabbed around the throat by a man of Asian appearance in his mid-40s. The man held him down while the second man, also believed to be Asian, entered the car and drove them around the streets of Strathfield. The victim who was repeatedly assaulted, handed over money and was eventually released in Coventry St, Strathfield. Senseless act costs $12,000 Part of the damaged van. FIONA BRADY MINDLESS thugs hurled bricks at a charity van in Burwood, causing $12,000 worth of damage. The attack on the Point Zero Youth Outreach van happened in the early hours of Saturday morning when the vehicle was parked out- side the Woodstock Com- munity Centre in Fitzroy St. The charity's co- ordinator Naomi Rosenthal said she ''broke down and cried'' when she discovered the damage on Saturday. ''For people to mindlessly destroy a vehicle which serves the community's young people is beyond be- lief,'' she said. ''I broke down and cried when I saw the damage that was done by bricks having been thrown at it from all sides.'' The charity provides drug and alcohol outreach ser- vices for young people. The van is manned by a professional youth worker and trained volunteers who travel around the Inner West supporting and edu- cating young people, par- ticularly those who are binge drinking. Point Zero general man- ager Rachel Swartz ap- pealed for community help to pay for the repairs. ''We are an organisation totally funded by private donations, without a penny of government support and we are now going to have to go out and raise $12,000 to repair the van so it can go back into service,'' she said. To make a donation go to www.pointzero.org.au or call 9389 0399. weekly news $199 $199 $199 Tomatoes 1kg $1.99 per kg Red Seedless Grapes per kg $2.99 per kg William Pears 1kg $1.99 per kg Nectarines 1kg $1.99 per kg DVD Player with HDMI Output • Allows you to upscale high definition resolutions including 1080P* • Progressive scan • Fully compatible with DVD/MP3/VCD/CD/CD-R/ CD-RW/DVD+/-RW/Kodak Picture CD/MPEG4 • Adjustable screen aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9) Multimedia Player • 4GB memory • 1.8" full colour display with external speaker • Plays MP3/MP4/WMA files • Plays AMV movies and displays JPEG images • Game and e-book function • Voice recorder • Available in pink, silver, purple, blue or black USB terminal * To upscale to a HDTV with a HDCP cable HDMI is required $59 card reader built-in FM tuner $4999ea smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 03/02/09 to 09/02/09 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
