CCTV footage shows alleged perpetrators of assault at Jervois
Plus police are seeking information about stolen trailers and farm machinery.
Police have shared CCTV footage of an alleged home invasion at Jervois, hoping that someone will be able to identify the men involved.
The footage shows three men breaking into a property on Jervois Road around 3.30am on April 6.
Each was wearing dark clothing and a mask.
As Murray Bridge News reported at the time, they allegedly went on to assault the home’s occupant with pieces of timber, and to steal the keys to several vehicles.
The 50-year-old man needed treatment at the Murray Bridge hospital after the attack.
Investigators have urged anyone who recognises the men in the footage, or with any more information about the attack, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au.
Trailers, farm machinery stolen
Meanwhile, police are also seeking information about the theft of two trailers on Murray Bridge’s east side last week.
The trailers were taken from a parking bay on the Old Princes Highway at Long Flat, near the South Eastern Freeway interchange sometime between 8am last Tuesday and 2pm on Friday.
They were a white 2017 Jamieson Boomer, registration SY60GO, and a white 2014 dolly with a red chassis, registration YS18DC.
Police are investigating whether they might have been used in the subsequent theft of a yellow Active front-end loader and bucket, registration S95SFJ, a green-and-red Munro post-hole digger attachment, a John Deere zero-turn ride on lawnmower, a worn blue dual-axle car trailer and 400 litres of diesel fuel from a farm at Peake.
The farm equipment was stolen last Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
Anyone with information that might help with the investigation, including descriptions of any suspicious vehicles in either area, should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au.
