Students join patrol clean-up CHELSEA beach is a whole lot cleaner after more than 38kg of rubbish was collected last Wednesday (8 March) by the dedicated volunteers of Chelsea Beach Patrol and some enthusiastic school students. Chelsea Beach Patrol is a group of community-minded volunteers who have the common mission of cleaning up the mess each month that others leave behind at Chelsea, Bonbeach and Edithvale beaches. Zone manager Lucy Bonham, who is a teacher at Nossal High School in Berwick, took 44 students from year 9 to 11 to assist in this month’s clean-up, and says the experience was “eye opening”. “The students were pretty shocked at just how much rubbish is left behind by people who’d

rather throw it in the bushes than find a bin, or stub their butts out in the sand instead of disposing of them properly,” she said. “Education really is the best way to change community attitudes and reinforcing the importance of placing rubbish in bins, or taking it home.” Ms Bonham said most of the rubbish was plastic-based and included bottles, bags and lids. “It really is sad to see that people can leave so much rubbish that has an impact on the beach and the waterways.” Chelsea Beach Patrol collected 13,000kg of rubbish at the three Kingston beaches last year.

Police patrol

Uber driver assaulted AN Uber driver was warned, “Don’t call the police or I will shoot you” by one of two men who attacked and robbed him in Wells Rd Chelsea, 2.30am, Monday 13 March. The 28-year-old, of Pascoe Vale, had pulled over when his car overheated after dropping off a passenger in Frankston. Police said two men in a silver Ford Territory which stopped nearby demanded the driver hand over “everything he had”. When the driver said he only had a phone the pair punched, kicked and choked him before stealing his phone and wallet containing various credit and security cards. They then got back in the Ford Territory, registration number 1FA4EI, and did a U-turn

‘Wrong girl’ charged A CHELSEA man saw three women – one armed with a claw hammer and another a tomahawk – inside his neighbour’s garage, 7.20am, Saturday 11 March. One of the women was allegedly carrying a TV set. When the man attempted to film the women from the front door of his Glenola Rd unit, one called out: “You have chosen the wrong girls to mess with.” When the man retreated inside, one of the women ran up and kicked his front door, then allegedly hit his car with an implement causing a small dent. The women then got into a white hatch with a black bonnet and drove off. Police patrolling the area saw the car parked in a driveway further down Glenola Rd, and later searched the house which was in a state of disrepair. They allegedly found the TV set. A 26-year-old Chelsea woman was charged with theft and bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court in June.

A YOUTH was stabbed as he walked along a foreshore path off Beach Rd, Mentone, 10pm, Saturday 11 March. The 17-year-old, of Chelsea Heights, was with a friend when he was punched in the face by an unknown assailant and then felt what he thought was a push in the back. Soon afterwards he felt a “warm sensation and pain to his left shoulder”. When he saw that his jumper was covered in blood he realised he had been stabbed. While his friend ran to fetch the others further along the path, the victim ran towards Beach Rd and waived down a passing motorist while calling 000 on his mobile phone. The motorist stayed with the injured youth until police and ambulance officers arrived. He said he did not see his attacker, who came up from behind and ran off in the opposite direction. Staff at The Alfred hospital found a 1.5cm stab wound to the youth’s left shoulder. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
