Brick attack under investigation

Cannington Detectives are investigating an assault incident around 11:30am on Saturday 29th December 2018, where a truck driver stopped along Pinedale Street to assist an elderly man being threatened by three juvenile males carrying bricks.

He took one of the bricks from the boys and ordered them to leave, before re-entering his truck and driving away.
