The offender was described as being 170-180cm tall, of medium build and having an olive complexion. He was wearing a black polo top with white football shorts and a mask. Anyone with information should call Ashfield Police on 9797 4099. 2 POLICE are looking for two would-be thieves who assaulted a man in Burwood Rd, Burwood, on Tuesday morn- ing. The victim was walking towards the junction of Burwood Rd and Deane St at 6.30am when he observed two men standing on Deane St, one of whom asked him for a cigarette. The victim replied ''no'' and walked on, but was struck on the back of the head. His attackers surrounded him and a struggle ensued. When the victim fell to the ground, he was kicked on his upper torso and the men tried to grab his backpack. When they failed, they ran off. The first offender is described as being of Aboriginal appearance, 175cm tall and of medium build. He had facial hair and was wearing blue shorts, a grey shirt and a white hat. The second attacker was Caucasian, blond-haired, 180-185cm tall and slim. He was wearing blue denim jeans and a hooded jumper. Anyone with information should call Burwood police on 9745 8499. 3 A TEENAGE P-plate driver from Abbotsford was caught driving more than 100km/h over the speed limit at Mascot on Friday night. At 11.45pm Surry Hills highway patrol officers detected the Holden Commodore travelling city-bound on Southern Cross Drive at speeds of up to 189km/h in an 80km/h zone. Officers stopped the vehicle and spoke with the 18-year-old driver, a P1 provisional licence-holder. He was arrested and taken to Surry Hills police station where he was served a court attendance notice for dangerous driving and exceeding the speed limit by more than 45km/h. His licence was also suspended. He will appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on October 7. 4 A MAN was trapped in a car after being involved in a collision with a heavy vehicle on the Parramatta Rd last Thursday. The crash happened at the intersection of Parramatta and Dartbrook roads in Auburn at 7.45pm. The man was driving a Toyota Corolla, which became wedged under the heavy vehicle, trapping him inside. He was released by emergency services and taken to Westmead Hospital where his condition is not known. The driver of the heavy vehicle was uninjured. Parramatta Rd was closed for an hour after the incident. Child found in hep B case A CROYDON Park couple who went on the run be- cause they didn't want their newborn son immunised for hepatitis B have now been located. DoCS had received a Su- preme Court order for the child to have the vaccine because the child's mother had the disease. It is understood that the couple believed that alu- minium in the vaccine could harm the child and fled with him and their 3-year-old daughter in mid- August. When the authorities failed to find them within a few days, DoCS abandoned the search, saying too much time had elapsed for the vaccine to be effective. However, a DoCS spokewoman said last week the family had been located and attended medical ap- pointments with DoCS. ''For legal reasons we can- not release any details about the child's con- dition,'' she said. weekly news 3 alternative sources of power 500g $149 $149 $199 Strawberries 500g 40c per 100g Tomatoes 1kg $1.49 per kg Sundowner Apples 1kg $1.49 per kg Lettuce each 99c per unit 99c 3-Way Refrigerator 45L • 45L capacity • 75W power • Electricity: 240V AC • Battery: 12V • Gas bottle powered 13.7g/h (9kg bottle lasts approx 27 days) • Dimensions: 532(h) x 460(w) x 470(d)mm Blood Pressure Monitor • Fully automatic blood pressure and pulse measurement • Detects arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) • Automatic pressure pre-selection and deflation • Date and time display • Cuff size (wrist circumference) 14-19.5cm • Packed in a sturdy storage box $4999 $299 1year warranty 1year warranty large LCD display 60-user memory storage 20 kg smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 16/09/08 to 22/09/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
