Hit and miss


A SWORD was thrust through the security door of a Mornington house during a dispute, 10.10pm, Wednesday 6 March. 

Detective Acting Sergeant Peter Drake, of Somerville CIU, said a resident of the house in Coimadai Close, aged 30, heard a noise outside. He opened the front door to investigate – leaving the security door locked.

On the porch a man, carrying a sword, and a woman, demanded he hand over “property”. The resident refused. As the man tried to force open the security door the sword was thrust through the wire mesh.

Two women, aged 30 and 48, were also at the house.

No one was injured in the incident.

Anyone with information is urged to call Somerville CIU 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
