Storylines – Stop the rot and take action

Having spent a long time reflecting on the last 13 weeks since the floods devastated our region, many important issues have come to my attention – loss of homes, possessions, safety, schools suspended from flooding, chaos, death, loss of animals, extreme anxiety and desperation, and so much more.

Lismore Police are appealing to the public for information after a 73-year-old man was assaulted and robbed in Goonellabah on Friday night.

At around 7.45pm the man was walking along a laneway in Hayes Street, when he was attacked from behind. The offender demanded money and made off with the man’s watch and a set of keys.

The victim managed to make his way to a nearby house where police and ambulance were called. He was later taken to Lismore Base Hospital where he was treated for bruising and swelling to the face.

The offender is described as being male, Aboriginal in appearance, aged in his late teens to early 20s, wearing a white hat, green shirt and grey pants, and with black bushy hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lismore Police Station on 02 6626 0599 or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
