Burglars cut off dogs ear in Watson

Share Canberra's trusted news:

IN a violent break-in on during March last year, two men severed a dogs ear and fired a gun at a home on Molesworth Street, Watson.

The men forced entry into the home at about 10.47pm, on March 17, where they began to threaten the occupants, with one victim suffering an injury to the head. Police say the victim’s dog had its ear severed with a machete and a firearm was discharged into the premises by an offender.

Police believe the offenders were not acting alone and had assistance from others.

The offenders were seen entering a grey coloured Holden Astra, which was the same type of vehicle seen acting suspiciously in the suburb of Casey later that evening.

Police are now seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the four men seen in the vicinity of Molesworth Street at the time of the aggravated burglary. Police believe the four men may be able to assist in the investigation.
