Crime Watch: Police hunt “Mosman Mullet” – Tinder user left with broken heart and empty wallet.
Police are hunting for a man we’ll call the “Mosman Mullet” concerning a string of break and enter offences over the weekend.
The man and two male accomplices gained entry to several cars and houses on Reginald St, Avenue Rd, Noble St, Cremorne Rd and Oswald St.
Senior Constable Jenni Brown, from North Shore Police Area Command, says the group stole credit cards, phones, iPads and a motor vehicle in the early hours of Friday morning (17/9).
The men are described as Caucasian and aged in their teens or early twenties.
Their fashion choices are also questionable.
“One is described as 180cm tall with a brown mullet, wearing a black Nike tracksuit, gardening gloves and a blue cap,” Senior Constable Brown said, “anyone who saw anything suspicious is urged to contact Crime Stoppers or North Shore Detectives.”
Local Police are continuing investigations into a drinks party that turned sour at a home in the quiet streets of leafy Roseville last Wednesday.
Detectives stumbled onto the mystery case by accident while attending Royal North Shore Hospital on an unrelated matter.
“Police were alerted to a 44-year-old man who had presented at the Emergency Department with facial injuries and rope/tie marks around his wrists,” Senior Constable Brown tells Mosman Collective.
“It’s alleged that the man was entertaining some guests during the evening of 15 September. Friends of those guests then arrived and assaulted the man before stealing jewellery, drugs and a large amount of cash.”
