Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : September 24 2008
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, September 25, 2008 MB NEWS Fire lands man in hospital A 28-YEAR-OLD man suf- fered burns to almost half of his body after his Homebush Bay penthouse suite caught fire last Wednesday night. About 11pm the fire tore through the roof of the Mari- ner's Cove apartment. The fire is believed to have started from the kitchen. It destroyed most of the contents in the flat. About 150 residents from the Bennelong Rd unit block were evacuated. Auburn police Chief In- spector David Minarik said the injured man took a taxi to Concord Hospital. He is in intensive care in a serious but stable con- dition with about 48 per cent burns to his body. Forty-eight firefighters and 15 fire trucks took one hour to extinguish the blaze and contain to the unit. ''The two units on either side suffered heat and smoke damaged,'' NSW Fire Brigades Supt Craig Brierly said. Taxi driver on assault charges CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 4 2 5 1 AN Ashfield taxi driver has been charged with indecently assaulting two female passengers. The alleged assault happened at 3.30am on September 12 after the two women got into the accused's taxi in Darlinghurst. The women, aged 19 and 20, asked to be taken to King St, Newtown. Police allege that when the taxi reached Newtown, the 62-year-old driver continued off King St and indecently assaulted both women while trying to kiss one of them. One of the women grabbed the taxi driver's identity card and they both fled. The driver rang police who patrolled the area and located the two women. After further inquiries, the driver was charged with two offences of indecent assault and two charges of assault. He was granted bail and will appear at Newtown Court on October 14. 2 A TEENAGE boy escaped with cuts and bruises when he and the push bike he was riding became trapped under a car at Homebush Bay last Wednesday. Emergency services rushed to Underwood Rd to find the boy firmly stuck under the car following the crash at 2.40pm. It wasn't until fire brigade rescue officers freed the boy that the NRMA CareFlight doctor and ambulance paramedics were able to fully assess his injuries. The doctor said the boy, 14, from Concord West, was riding his bike home from school when the accident happened. ''While it was a dreadful scene, somehow the boy escaped with only cuts and bruises which is truly amazing,'' the doctor said. The boy was taken by ambulance for assessment at Westmead Children's Hos- pital where he was in a stable condition on arrival. 3 DETECTIVES have charged a second man in connection with a string of armed robberies on bowling clubs -- includ- ing one in Ashbury -- earlier this year. On Friday police from Strike Force Leavenworth set up to investigate the robberies charged the 35-year-old man from Waterloo with 18 offences. His co-accused is a 41-year-old Marrickville man who was arrested and charged with 30 offences on August 29. Some of the charges relate to an incident at a bowling club on King St, Ashbury at 4.15am on July 20, 2008. It is alleged the men were both armed with shortened firearms and threatened staff members and demanded cash. When they were unable to obtain any cash they drove away. The Waterloo man has been refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Local Court on Saturday. 4 A MAN was stabbed during an at- tempted home invasion in Lidcombe last Friday. The 31-year-old answered the front door of his Victoria St home and was confronted by a man with a knife. He was described as being of Middle-Eastern appearance. The man forced entry and a struggle took place during which the victim received lacerations. The offender fled with a mobile phone in a Toyota Passo driven by a female. The victim was treated for superficial injuries at Auburn Hospital and released. Anyone with information is asked to call Flemington police on 9646 8699. 5 TWO people have been charged in connection with the discovery of cannabis plants in South Strathfield.
