POLICE are calling for the pedestrians, who were walking during the time of a suspicious drive by in Pearce on Friday (November 1), to come forward. 

Between 4.50am and 5.10am, a dark-coloured SUV was seen driving in several streets in Pearce, including Hodgson Crescent and Brinsmead Street, with at least two people on board.
