readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Have you ever stood up for someone who was being bullied?

Peter Dunshea, Khandallah “I never had the occasion to but I think it’s important.”

Salem Pithio, Newlands “No, I didn’t, but it’s definitely important to help others.”

Federica Possidente, Paparangi “Yeah, I did. It’s just not right when people bully others.”

Ngawhare Penehawhakatutu, Johnsonville “Yes, I stood up for someone who was suicidal due to bullying; thankfully she is still with us today. It’s a very national thing these days.”

Pip Bedford, Johnsonville “Yes I did, at work.”

Rory More, Khandallah “Not to physical bullying like in the movies but I stood up to emotional bullying which is more common, I think.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a house in Dominion Park Street was entered although the means of entry are not known. The property had been left locked and secure and there is no sign of force used. Most of the house was searched and a washing bin and a bag are missing and probably used to take away the stolen items. The list of items taken is not yet complete but it is known that a laptop computer,

a TV, four watches including a high value Omega watch, a media player and a jewellery box and contents were taken. A window at the Keith Spry Pool in Frankmoore Avenue was smashed. A male entered a service station in Johnsonville Road and with limited cash tried to buy several food items. He eventually settled on buying a pie which he paid for but then tried to leave the

shop with protein and chocolate bars which he could not pay for. When the assistant called the Police he handed back these items and left before Police arrived. In Newlands a red Holden Commodore saloon parked overnight on the street in Dress Circle had its front right side window smashed. No entry into the vehicle was gained. A black Holden Commodore saloon parked locked and

secure on the road in Colchester Crescent, between 6.40 and 8 20 am, was stolen. In Churton Park a rental property in Winsley Terrace had its frosted glass front door smashed. In Ngaio a house in Awarua Street left locked and secure was broken into, possibly through a forced rear window. Most rooms were searched. Items known to have been stolen at this stage

include an iPad, a laptop computer with charger and power cords, a flat screen TV, and the undisclosed contents of a small cash box. In Crofton Downs a bicycle placed near the front door of a house in Silverstream Road was stolen. The bicycle was not secured. The thief must have entered the property in order to see the bicycle because it could not be seen from the road.
