According to reports, two armed males robbed the parent and escaped with her wedding ring in a white vehicle (registration HP 47 or 27 GP). The vehicle has since been identified.
The robbery occurred during peak hour traffic when a number of busses were in Cestrum Avenue and traffic had slowed to a standstill. The victim is believed to have been followed into the suburb and is not a resident of MX40.
- Please remain extremely vigilant during peak hour traffic, and try and keep enough of a distance between you and the car in front of you that you can drive away if necessary.

- Keep an eye on your rear view mirror, especially when leaving a shopping centre or restaurant.
- Make use of the Meet & Greet service offered by Beagle Watch if you suspect you are being followed en route home.
