Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 6 Hansard (3 Junes) . . Page.. 1636..

I would like to register my strong support for action to be taken to catch this person. As a long standing member of the Narrabundah community, I have witnessed firsthand the damage caused by this crazed lunatic. My next door neighbour who owns a light commercial vehicle has had their tyres slashed on a number of occasions. The tyre slashing in Narrabundah has been going on for more than two decades costing residents, I dare say, tens of thousands of dollars.

I ask that urgent action be taken to step-up patrols by Police and do whatever is necessary to catch this person. As a Narrabundah resident I am fearful that the actions of this crazed person might escalate to crimes far worse.

I want to thank you, in advance Giulia for presenting this petition to the Assembly and I plead for action to be taken to safeguard the property of Narrabundah residents and instil a sense of safety to the suburb.

Phil said:

He slashed my car when it was brand new and in my driveway.

Peter said:

I have had my tyres slashed three times in my driveway and my neighbour has been done too. The slasher lives in the units and he carries a screw driver in his pocket.

Grace said:

The police know us, even the tyre guy knows us. We have had it done 12 times. The slasher drives a small red car. I have heard people say they caught and busted him. If you have friends over you are gone.

Grace suffers from cerebral palsy.

This person is a menace in Narrabundah and Griffith, and I join my voice to the voices of the 274 residents who want more resources put into catching this person and stopping the vandalism, damage, attacks and fear that are a part of life for many residents in this part of our city.
