Man who fled ACT arrested for attempted murder

A 33-year-old Richardson man will face ACT Magistrates Court today, Saturday 6 February 2021, on an attempted murder charge.

The man was arrested in Bridgewater, Tasmania by Tasmania Police on Thursday 4 February. He appeared before Hobart Magistrates Court the same day where an interstate extradition to the ACT was granted.

The man was wanted by ACT Policing in relation to a stabbing incident that occurred in Gowrie on Thursday 1 October 2020 where the 23-year-old victim fled to a nearby service station for help.

Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigations, Detective Inspector Marcus Boorman warned that this investigation was far from complete.

“We do believe other people were involved in this incident and we urge them to come forward before we come knocking,” Detective Inspector Boorman said.

“We work closely with our interstate colleagues, and I would like to thank Tasmania Police for assisting with this arrest and extradition.

ACT Policing will continue to track down offenders and place them before the court.”

Police seek witnesses to Dickson assault

Meanwhile, ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a serious assault that occurred on Thursday afternoon, 4 February.

About 2pm Thursday, a 30-year-old man required medical treatment after being assaulted by two men at the intersection of Antill Street and Northbourne Avenue, Dickson.

The two men are believed to have left the area in a silver Ford Falcon and green Hyundai sedan.

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses and dash-cam footage or anyone with information that could assist police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6727054. Information can be provided anonymously.
