Arrests made over liquor store attack incident

Robbery Update – Arrest

Police have alerted the media and public to the progress of the case involving a young man named Jordan, who was attacked when confronting thieves at Breakers. 

At about 8:20pm on Monday 29 June 2015 two males attended a bottle shop on Chapman Road, Geraldton and it will be alleged, stole five bottles of spirits.

It will further be alleged the victim (an employee of the store) approached the males requesting payment, at which point one male ran toward the victim and struck him to the side of the face with the bottle, causing it to smash. The victim sustained cuts to the side of his face, which required sutures.

The victim has also had to undergo a CT scan. 

Police say the two men have now been identified and arrested. 

A 25 year old male from Waggrakine was charged with Aggravated Robbery and Unlawful Wounding. His bail was refused and he appeared before Geraldton Magistrates Court on Saturday morning. He was remanded in custody to reappear on Monday 20 July 2015.

A 25 year old male from Karloo was charged with Stealing and will appear before Geraldton Magistrates Court at a later date.

Let's hope Jordan's luck gets better. Last year his home suffered extensive damage when a stolen vehicle was driven through his lounge-room window.  (Click here)
