Dickson Attack


A 19-year-old man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today after allegedly stealing alcohol and assaulting another man in an unprovoked attack in Dickson last night.

About 8pm yesterday (Monday, 22 April 2024), police attended a bottle shop in Dickson following a report that a man had taken drinks and left without paying.

About 10pm, police received a report of an assault involving a man with a similar description to the first incident.

A short time later a man matching the CCTV footage from the bottle shop was located nearby and arrested.

He has been charged with two counts of minor theft and one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Police believe the man was also involved in other incidents that occurred that evening, including an attempted armed robbery of a takeaway shop and another assault where a man was stabbed.
