Lane Cove Week in Review – 9 to 15 Jan 2017

Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 9 to 15 January.

Hot Hot Hot – Damn Hot

This week it got seriously hot in Lane Cove. One Roving Reporter sent us this picture which showed temps in excess of 47 Degrees Celsius at 5.09 pm. Distressingly we did receive reports of people leaving animals and kids in cars during the hot weather. Just a reminder that a car can still be very hot inside even if the car is located in an undercover car park.


Inspirational Messages

First, we had our Lane Cove Yarn Bomber and now we have the Lane Cove Lift Bomber. A lovely resident left an inspirational note in the Lane Cove Market Square Lifts.

New Food Operator at The Diddy

Big news in this week, is that The Diddy (aka the Longueville Sporting Club) has a new food operator, who is taking over this month. The Lawns is rumoured to be up and running by 25 January.

The Diddy’s website says

We are currently re-jigging our kitchen for a new exciting Caterer/Manager/Chef (and team) to get cracking early in 2017. ​We are developing new menus and styles to suit the Diddy, so we’ll keep you posted on all details soon.

Crime Report

This week’s North Shore LAC Crime Report:

Breach AVO and Mal damage – Lane Cove

About 6.45pm on Sunday the 8th January a home owner on Penrose Street, Lane Cove heard yelling and screaming coming from the front of the premise. A 30 year old male (with a current AVO not to attend that address) was demanding to be seen by the occupants, stating he was injured.

The male was located by the occupants, who immediately contacted an ambulance. The male became aggressive and left the location allegedly covered in blood.

Police were contacted by a member of the public with concerns for a male walking towards Riverview covered in blood. Police attended the location a short time later and placed the male under arrest for breach of AVO. Police searched the male’s property and located a clear resealable bag allegedly containing 5.3 grams of cannabis. He was then conveyed back to Chatswood Police Station for charging.

While in custody the male became very aggressive and began threatening police, even spitting at them. The male then began hitting the dock door with his head and inflicted wounds on himself that required medical assistance. Due to his heightened level of aggressiveness police organised for the Public Order Riot Squad (PORS) to attend and restrain the male before ambulance officers could treat the male.

The male was conveyed to Royal North Shore Hospital for treatment before he was later released back into police custody. The male was bail refused and charged with two counts of Common assault, Stalk/intimidate intend fear physical etc harm (domestic) and Destroy or damage property >$ 2000 & <=$ 5000. He will appear in Hornsby Local Court.

Balcony Fire – Lane Cove

Around 2:30pm on Monday 9th January Fire Officer and police were called to a unit complex on Little Street, Lane Cove where a balcony was allegedly on fire. Police and Fire officers attended a short time later and had to force entry into a unit due to the owner not being home.

Once inside, they were able to get to the balcony which was alight. The fire was quickly extinguished with minimal damage to the property occurring. It was undetermined by fire officers as to how the fire started and no persons were injured as a result.

Incidents Reported to ITC

A roving reporter advised that A neighbours’ car was broken into on Wednesday night. The car was parked in a carport under an apartment block on Stokes Street and they also damaged the roving reporter’s bicycle.
