A violent string of attacks on vehicles in Eaton are being investigated by police after a taxi driver stopped to confront a group of juveniles that pelted rocks at his car. His car was one of three that were targeted. Australind police say they are making “good progress” with their investigations into the incidents, which all happened under the cover of darkness in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police are looking for a group of “four or five” male juveniles that attacked a car parked at the Eaton Fair shopping centre and stole tools from it, which are then believed to have been used in the other attacks. One taxi driver stopped to investigate after his car was hit by rocks and confronted the juveniles as he called police around 2am. His taxi, which had customers in it at the time, was damaged but is still in use. Australind police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Luke Fowler said while no personal theft or assaults were reported, the damage was disappointing. “There were no robbery offences, no one was injured; it is just pure, blatant damage,” he said. Sen. Sgt Fowler urged anyone with more information about the incidents, or who may have seen the group, one of whom was wearing a red jumper, to come forward to police. “If there is anyone who was driving around and might have any dashcam footage from the area, we would love to obtain that footage or anything that might help progress the investigations,” he said. The incident happened just days before another spate of thefts, this time in the Treendale area, from unlocked cars. It prompted police to warn residents to lock their doors. There were three thefts from unlocked vehicles between midnight, January 11, and 5am, January 12, along Lunar Avenue and Milky Way Link in Treendale.
