Police commend the actions of a brave teenager who confronted an intruder in her Bateman home late last month. 

Around 4.36pm on Tuesday the 29th of May 2012, the teenager was home alone at her Broadhurst Crescent home, when she heard someone moving about the house.  Upon opening her bedroom door, she confronted a strange male in the hallway who was just as surprised to see her as she was to see him.  The male murmured something suggesting he was startled at her presence, before running down the hallway to escape.  The teenager quickly returned to her room and closed the door to report the matter to police.

Police attendance revealed that the male had entered the home by forcibly smashing the glass panel to the kitchen window, allowing access inside.  The male rummaged through the kitchen and master bedroom in search of valuables before he was sprung.  

Although shaken, the sixteen year old was able to provide a very good description of the male to police who are eager to identify the male responsible.

The male is described as: 

  • Deep tanned complexion
  • Medium length dark brown messy hair
  • Medium, athletic build
  • Approximately 177cm
  • Wearing a green singlet with a dark blue logo or pattern covering most of the chest, dark blue work shorts and brown work boots with socks pulled up over the top.

If you know the identity of this male, or have information about this offence, make a report online or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, where all calls are strictly confidential, and rewards are offered. Please quote Reference Number 6063.
