Walkin’ in the Valley of Death: Victoria St

Pays to be careful as a pedestrian in Abbotsford. This poor bugger was knocked down dead by a van back in May and died, and at 2.25 a.m. yesterday, some bloke standing near the corner of Nicholson and Victoria Sts gets dead after being hit by a white van. It’s an event a minute on Victoria St: someone was pulled over at 2.30 a.m. on 6 June 2006 with a vial of GBH. Of course he was not a local, but a burgher of that disreputable part of town on the other side of the river, Kew. There they found the big stash. And now it seems a Hoddle St servo got visited by those kids on the security video on tonight’s news, as recently as 23 June 2006. And these guys are like serial armed robbers man. You can rely on hearing it second on this blog.

  1. The armed bandits aren’t restricted to just the southern streets of Abbotsford – on Thursday a poor chap burst into EJ’s sandwich shop up my end of Johnston St bleeding from a stab in the gut.

    And the fellow who runs Abbotsford Tools a few doors down has a band-aid permanently attached to his nose, after a robber armed only with his teeth nibbled the end clean off.

    Not to mention the annonymous hooligan who stabbed the front tyre of my scooter at the weekend!
