GUNGAHLIN Marketplace experienced some disruption this morning (March 5) after it was turned into a crime scene following an attempted robbery.
Police were called to the marketplace at about 4.45am following reports of a robbery. When police arrived the two men attempted to flee the scene, and one of the men, 33, of Monash, assaulted a police officer, who had to be taken to hospital for treatment.
Detective acting superintendent Adrian Craft says anyone who assaults police officers, who protect the community, will be charged and will face the ACT Magistrates Court.
The Monash man is likely to face court in the near future charged with assault and property offences.
It’s likely the Gungahlin Marketplace and the surrounding area will experience some disruption.
