The group left the property on foot, pushing the motorcycle down the road.
Shortly after a security officer was patrolling the area when she observed three people pushing a motorcycle near the intersection of Spearwood Avenue and Gower Street. As she observed the group from her vehicle, they approached, hitting the driver’s side window with a small axe. The item entered the vehicle landing next to the officer.
The officer managed to drive away after receiving grazes to her shoulder, hand and fingers. The group fled the area, abandoning the motorcycle.
Police have released CCTV of the incident showing men who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
