A 21-year-old Nowra woman was caught stealing from Liquorland and Coles during the week.

Police arrested the woman on Friday.

In both robberies the woman was seen hiding items before leaving the stores without paying.

Police were called and spoke with the woman who at first gave them a false name when questioned.

She will be appearing before Nowra Local Court at a future date.

In another robbery, at 6pm on Saturday a customer of Coles at Vincentia had her purse removed from her handbag while it was in her shopping trolley.

Police are reminding shoppers to keep their personal items on them.

“Leaving your personal items, especially wallets and bags, can become a target for others to take, especially when left within a shopping trolley when you are distracted by buying groceries,” said Inspector Susan Charman-Horton.

Hurst outplays Storm

FOCUSED: Sandhurst goalshooter Kelsey Sartori played a key role in her club’s A-grade victory at Strathfieldsaye in Saturday’s start to the 12th round in the Bendigo Football Netball League season. Picture: BILL CONROYSANDHURST won all but one quarter of the A-grade netball clash at Strathfieldsaye in Saturday’s start to the 12thround of the Bendigo Football Netball League season.
Nanjing Night Net

Second on the ladder going into the clash, Sandhurst was wary of a Storm line-up that pushed Golden Square at Flight Centre Park just a few weeks earlier.

A spirited opening term on Strathfieldsaye’s court ended in a 10-8 lead for Sandhurst.

The maroon and blue won the next two quarters, 11-7 and 14-11.

Storm cut the deficit in a 6-3 run early in the final term, but the Carol Cathcart-coached Sandhurst steadied to achieve a 45-37 victory.

Among the many highlights of the match were the mid-court duels as Sandhurst’s Stacey Rothacker (centre), Brooke Bolton (wing attack) and Kate Grose (wing defence) took on Brianna Dalrymple-Monro, Bianca Jones and Aleisha Langdon.

Goalshooter Kelsey Sartori racked up 10 of her team’s 14 goals in the third quarter.

Hot favourite for the premiership, Golden Square won by 20 goals on Kangaroo Flat’s court at Bendigo Mazda Oval in Dower Park.

In a rematch of last year’s grand finalists, Golden Square’s slick passing and strong defence was capped by excellent goaling in a 61-41 victory.

Gisborne won a hard-fought contest at Kyneton.

A week after a one-goal win on Maryborough’s court, Gisborne fought on to beat Kyneton by four goals.

Kyneton’s play was not indicative of its 5-7 record as seventh took on third.

The round was completed on Sunday when matches were played at Castlemaine’s Camp Reserve and at Bendigo’s Queen Elizabeth Oval.

Maryborough scored a 65-42 in the battle of the Magpies at Castlemaine.

Eaglehawk won every quarter on its way to a 42-35 win against South Bendigo at the QEO.

The Hawks opened up a nine-goal lead by half-time and went on to achieve their third win of the season.

A-grade ladder: Golden Square 184 per cent, 48 points; Sandhurst 153, 42; Gisborne 127, 34; Kangaroo Flat 138, 28; Strathfieldsaye 124, 28; Maryborough 114 24; Kyneton 97, 20; Eaglehawk 57, 12; South Bendigo 54, 4; Castlemaine 43, 0.

“If you are a woman looking for a bed tonight, you are on a wild goose chase”

Nanjing Night Net

THE CASUALTIES: WOMEN KILLED SO FAR THIS YEAR

Women fleeing domestic violence in NSW are being turned away from refuges in droves as frontline workers say a culture of silence has blanketed the sector more than a year after the government overhauled crisis accommodation services.

Almost 90 per cent of women’s refuges in NSW are full, with one operator likening the chances of a woman getting a bed to “winning the lottery”.

In Sydney, where all the refuges are at capacity, one shelter manager told The Sun-Herald: “If you are a woman looking for a bed tonight, you are on a wild goose chase.”

Across the state, there are just 350 bedrooms in 63 government-owned shelters where women fleeing domestic violence can seek refuge. A further 12 non-government owned crisis properties also cater to domestic violence victims.

Last week, only seven refuges had vacancies . These were limited to one or two beds, and most operators said this was a rare occurrence. Just one of the 58 refuges that responded to the Sun-Herald’s inquiries said it could usually accommodate a woman fleeing domestic violence on the day she sought help.

Domestic violence is a daily occurrence, with official figures showing there were 28,870 assaults in the year  to March. This equates to almost 80 attacks reported every day, and social workers say the real figure is likely to be much higher as many assaults go unreported. So far this year, eight women have allegedly been killed by their partners, four of whom face  murder charges.

The consequences of the shortfall in emergency accommodation was writ large in January when 26-year-old Leila Alavi was allegedly murdered by her husband in an Auburn car park. She had been turned away from refuges up to a dozen times.

Laurie Maher, the executive officer of Coast Shelter, which manages three women’s refuges on the Central Coast, described the demand for emergency shelter by women escaping domestic violence as “a crisis”.

“We’ve had to knock back 207 referrals for domestic violence this year. We just didn’t have the accommodation. Unfortunately, it does mean that some of the women remain in abusive situations.”

Most refuges told The Sun-Herald their services and staff had been stretched to exhaustion after the government’s Going Home Staying Home changes, with one manager saying many were now feeling “traumatised and terrified”.

Last year’s changes centred on a radical consolidation of the independent women’s refuges with generalist homelessness services. In 2014, after a competitive tendering process, 20 of the 76 women’s refuges were handed back to their usual management, while faith-based charities such as St Vincent de Paul and Mission Australia assumed control of the rest.

In more than a dozen interviews with refuge managers, across the state, most requested anonymity, saying they feared the consequences of publicly criticising the government’s handling of the sector. This was the case even though many also had positive views of particular aspects of the reforms.

“It’s really concerning. We’re being silenced by a government department we are supposedly in a commercial relationship with,” a manager of a Sydney refuge said.

“The last thing I want to do is speak out of turn and jeopardise this service, but we do need to be able to speak up. It’s scary times for us.”

Another manager said her organisation had been subject to “extreme micromanagement” by the Department of Families and Community Services, which had been “extremely directive about what to say and what not to say [to the media]”.

“It used to be that we were real advocates for women and now we are quite fearful of saying anything at all. We have to be grateful for every cent that we get,” she said.

At a meeting of service providers earlier this year, department officials issued a directive to the organisations to scale back their media presence, another frontline worker said. “They told us women’s services need to stop campaigning. It’s scaring women fleeing domestic violence into thinking there aren’t any services available. And we just kept saying, actually, there aren’t.”

Minister for Family and Community Services Brad Hazzard declined to respond to these claims, but noted that the changes had been “unfortunately uncomfortable” for some organisations.

With almost all of the refuges now operating under the broader remit of homelessness, women fleeing domestic violence are effectively in competition for beds with women who have different homelessness needs.

Mr Hazzard said the changes had delivered an “increase in transitional and crisis housing and more requests met for women in specialist homelessness services”.

But on the ground, frontline workers said they are now doing more with less.

“We haven’t lost the number of beds but there’s more people competing for the beds. Anything vaguely associated with homelessness is referred our way and we’ve gained about two and a half times more clients,” one refuge operate in the state’s north said.

Another consequence of the changes has been the increase in drugs and alcohol being consumed in refuges.

“In our area they closed down a few services that dealt primarily with drug and alcohol use. What we’ve found now is that in the crisis centres we’re getting a lot of people still drinking alcohol and that’s a huge burden on the service,” said Suellyn Moore, a manager of two refuges in the Lake Macquarie area.

Although the sector is still in a state of transition, the impact of loss of decades of knowledge and expertise is already evident, said Gemma Morley, chief executive of Port Macquarie’s Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Service.

“To me it just hit home recently at a regional forum where there were new players in the room …  it just became so obvious we have lost so much expertise in the domestic violence sector.

“A lot of good came out of the reforms, but we do run the risk of losing the remaining expertise if we don’t commit to that.”

‘Nothing will be right with the world again’Phil Walsh’s daughter’s emotional tribute

Phil Walsh with his family.The daughter of slain Adelaide Crows coach Phil Walsh has written anemotional tribute to her father following his tragic death.
Nanjing Night Net

“Hold your family close, never for a second take them for granted for that will be the second you lose them,” Quinn Walsh reportedly wrote on her Facebook page on Saturday.

“I have lost half my family in a blink of an eye, nothing will be right with the world again.

“Wanna thank everyone for the support and love, will be home soon to be with my mother and to say goodbye to my one and only hero. x”

Ms Walsh was holidaying in the US on Friday, when her father was stabbed to death in the family’s Somerton Park home. His wife, Meredith, was also home at the time.

Walsh’s 26-year-old son and Ms Walsh’s older brother, Cy, has been charged with murder.

Ms Walsh returned to Adelaide on Saturday and has made no further statement. Mrs Walsh, who was being treated for a minor leg injury at Flinders Medical Centre, was released from hospital on Saturday.

In another development, a taxi driver who may have seen Cy Walsh at about 2.30amon Friday morning in Glenelg East, has come forward to policeas they continue to investigatea possible link to the drug ice in the case.

South Australian police refused to comment publicly on the claim because the matter is before the courts, but Fairfax Media understands that detectives are looking into whether the highly-addictive drug played a part.

A photo emerged on Saturday of a smoking pipe that was taken from a car parked at the Walsh home in an evidence bag by police.

Cy Walsh remains in James Nash House, a secure mental health facility, after being transferred from Flinders Medical Centre.

He was remanded in custody after a short bedside court hearing on Friday and is due to face Adelaide Magistrates Court on September 15.

Phil Walsh, 55, was found with multiple stab wounds at his family’s home in the seaside suburb at 2am on Friday. He died at the scene, despite the efforts of ambulance paramedics.

His son was arrested less than two kilometres away from the home, out the front of a school friend’s house in First Avenue, Glenelg East, where he had been regularly staying.

Witnesses to the arrest, who were residents living nearby, were woken by car doors slamming, elevated voices and lights from police cars.

“He was lying on the ground over there,” one neighbour pointed across the street to a driveway that he believed still had specks of dried blood on it.

“He was pretty quiet.”

Residents in First Avenue had linked the former Immanuel College student to a separate block of units in the same street, which had been known as a place where drugs were regularly used.

The unit was boarded-up after its windows had been smashed in a recent incident.

“When the arrest happened (on Friday) we thought, ‘Here we go again’,” a neighbour said.

Police said Cy Walsh was not involved in that incident and the man living inside the unit, who did not want to be named, repeatedly denied any connection.

“I have not met him, I have not seen him,” he said.

Police patrolled First Avenue sporadically on Saturday having already door-knocked residents on Friday, taking statements from a handful. They also canvassed business along the major thoroughfare between Somerton Park and Glenelg East for security footage to trace Cy Walsh’s movements.

Police are believed to be speaking with a taxi driver who investigators believe may have seen a man with blood on him near the corner of Jetty Road and Brighton Road.

In Somerton Park, neighbours were coming to grips with the death on Saturday.

The street had been reopened after it was cordoned-off on Friday while investigators forensically examined the scene and seized evidence, including the smoking pipe, a computer and a knife.

A security guard was stationed outside the Walsh home on Saturday with police tape still closing-off the property.

Neighbours spoken to by Fairfax Media did not hear any sign of a commotion inside the home in the early hours of Friday morning.

Most did not know the family that had only moved in in May.

Louise Jennings, who lived two doors down, said she had been “looking forward” to getting to know them.

“They seemed like a lovely family and I’m very sad to hear what had happened,” she said.

“The atmosphere here on Friday was so eerie, it was like the earth had known what had happened, it was so quiet.”

A further two homes up, nine-year-old Jayden Barkla had hung out his Crow jumper and scarf before kicking the footy in his front yard.

“He was a very good coach,” Jayden said.

Major Crime Squad Superintendent Des Bray told reporters on Friday morning that the incident was “tragic”.

“It’s not ever just that he’s a high-profile person, it’s just absolutely terrible when families are torn apart in such tragic circumstances,” he said.

“For any family, regardless of who it is, [this is] one of the worst things you could imagine that could happen to you. The pain and suffering of the family is no different.”

A different British drama: Glue. Photo: SuppliedFREE TO AIR
Nanjing Night Net

MasterChef Australia, Ten, 7.30pm

Tonight’s episode is, explains Gary at the beginning of tonight’s episode, “tougher than a normal day” in the MasterChef kitchen, as celebrity chef Shannon Bennett returns to oversee a very special challenge in tonight’s fight for an immunity pin. After a herb-off, in which four contestants battle it out over identifying everything from Thai basil to chervil, the big twist will be revealed – and it’s not just that Matt Preston’s pants are confined to just one colour.

Outback Truckers, 7Mate  8.30pm

The beauty of Outback Truckers is that its featured truckers are not always strictly in the outback (although every episode does follow at least one driver’s hairy journey across corrugated red dirt roads), and it tends to be the non-outback drivers that are the most interesting. And so it is tonight as Carl Andrews, an expert in driving ‘‘oversized’’ rigs, face a ludicrously monster challenge – transporting a 250-tonne electrical transformer (worth a mere $9 million) from the Newcastle docks to a power station. It’s not a huge journey but the logistics are insane – he must use a 50-tonne road train comprised of several trucks and stretching 150 metres. His road train is effectively heavier than the world’s largest airliner and must, for inexplicable reasons, be driven down suburban streets in the dead of night.

Glue, SBS2, 9.30pm

Technically a “teen drama”,  This is is a depiction of England’s green and pleasant land as you’ve never seen it. Written by Jack Thorne, who wrote the series This is England and Skins, Glue is loosely based on his own childhood in rural Berkshire. It follows a groups of teenage friends in the fictional village of Overton, where racehorse breeding and farming are the main industries, and teen ennui is alleviated with casual sex, a seemingly plentiful supply of drugs and potentially deadly antics. But when one of the gang, 14-year-old Romany boy Cal is found dead, the ensuing investigation threatens to reveal the village’s dark secrets. The young cast, among them Yasmin Paige (Submarine), Charlotte Spencer (Line of Duty), Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter movies), Faye Marsay (Fresh Meat) and Jordan Stephens, half of hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks, in his acting debut – are excellent. Kylie Northover

V for Vendetta, (2005)GO!, 8.30pm

During the live telecast of 2014’s Martin Place siege, debate ensued among commentators over whether the Arabic banner gunman Man Haron Monis had ordered placed in the window of the Lindt cafe was jihadist. Waleed Aly said it wasn’t, stating it was a commonly used spiritual message (‘‘There is no god but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God’’). Others disagreed, claiming it was jihadist because its wording had long been employed on jihadist banners and was used as a test during the 2013 Kenyan Westgate siege to separate Muslims from non-Muslims and kill the latter. To the lay observer, what had seemed at first like an open-and-shut case of discernible fact – the flag was or wasn’t jihadist – soon descended into a murky confusion over intent and interpretation.

Similar confusion followed the decision of the ABC’s Q&A to allow former terrorism suspect Zaky Mallah to verbally challenge parliamentary secretary Steven Ciobo and accuse the federal Coalition government of pushing young Australian Muslims into joining IS. The ABC has since admitted it made an ‘‘error of judgment’’. However, discussions about terrorism have always been fraught with difficulty, as the Wachowski siblings discovered after writing and producing V for Vendetta (directed by James McTeigue).

Inspired by the story of Guy Fawkes, who in 1605 decided to blow up London’s Houses of Parliament, Vendetta is set in the 2020s and tells the story of Evey (Natalie Portman), who is rescued from rape by a man in a Guy Fawkes mask, V (Hugo Weaving). He is an anarchist intent on bringing down the neo-fascists running Britain and he will go to any lengths to achieve his aims. The film is a fascinating and swirling exploration of almost every conundrum facing modern men and women – Evey offers to impersonate a child prostitute to kill a paedophilic priest; a television star pretends to be a womaniser to hide his gayness; V is genetically modified – but Vendetta upset many who felt it was an apology for terrorism. The film – like the Mallah debate – raised the issue of what constitutes a serious attempt to understand what causes people to think slaughtering others for spiritual, cultural or political grounds is a good idea. Meanwhile, Guy Fawkes is celebrated every November 5 with fireworks displays.

Police allege the man was performing a sex act and later grabbed the woman by the shoulder when she returned to her Auburn home on Wednesday night.

He had allegedly stalked the woman at her work and her home a few days prior.

The woman, 27, told police she was getting out of the lift at her Queen Street unit block when she saw the man playing with himself.

She ran towards her unit door but the stalker allegedly grabbed her shoulder.

Police say the woman started screaming and belting the man with her handbag until he eventually ran towards the lift and took off.

The victim told police she had seen the man twice before – once outside her work about 11am and then about 7pm in the lift of her unit block on Sunday, June 28.

After a public appeal for information, the alleged offender handed himself into Auburn police station on Saturday morning.

He was arrested and later charged with assault with act of indecency; committing an act of indecency with person older than 16 and stalking/intimidation with the intention of causing physical fear.

The man was refused bail and expected to appear before Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday.
