Backyard fight ends with stabbing and a punch SOMERVILLE detectives were last week investigating an alleged stabbing at Rosebud in which two offenders jumped a fence into the backyard of a house near the corner of Point Nepean and Boneo roads where they were confronted by two other men, 9pm, Thursday 24 October. In the ensuing struggle one of the victims received cuts to his hand from an unknown item – possibly a knife – while the other was punched in the face. Detective Acting Sergeant Peter Drake, of Somerville CIU, said the two offenders then ran to a car and were driven away. The victims are aged 51 and 52. The man who was stabbed later attended Rosebud Hospital for treatment.
The pair faced Frankston Magistrates’ Court on Thursday. The man was remanded in custody and the woman bailed. They will both reappear at the same court at a later date. Detective Drake said police would allege the pair seriously assaulted a man with a hammer at Rosebud on 11 October. The man received head injuries and is being treated at Frankston Hospital. He said the arson charges related to the burning of a stolen car at Rosebud. Detective Drake said the arrests formed part of Operation Night Eagle which targeted persons of interest.
Rosebud police are looking for the man, pictured, who took the new Apple iPhone 11 valued at $1720 which was still in its box, and drove off in a white Toyota Camry. The victim could not make out the registration number. The man is described a Caucasian, dark hair, dark eyes, and wearing a distinctive top. Anyone with information is asked to call Senior Constable Leanne Marshall at Rosebud Police 5986 0444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Slow learner SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol intercepted a 38-year-old Rye man driving without headlights or taillights along Frankston-Dandenong Road, Seaford, 2am, Saturday 19 October. The man was driving the same blue Commodore sedan issued with a defect notice in August still with the same wiring extending from the battery up through the bonnet and in through the window to provide a charging port for his phone. The man returned a positive drug test and his car was found to have suspended registration due to his not complying with the previous defect notice. He allegedly told police he was driving to Seymour to drop off the motorbike on his trailer. The man was released pending summons for drug driving, unregistered vehicle and trailer, unsafe vehicle, no headlights at night and insecure load in the trailer. Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said a large four-wheel-drive bull bar had been thrown on top of his load to keep it weighted down.
