A couple of disturbing events took place around my residental area recently, making me feel rather unsettled.
Less than a month ago, a man got murdered in a nearby train station's car park in broad daylight. A few weeks ago, an elderly man was beaten and robbed, also in broad daylight. Yesterday, there was a home invasion whereby the intruders were armed with tasers and stun guns!!
However, none of these struck me harder than the fact that Josh's car was broken into a few nights ago. Fortunately nothing was broken, and nothing valuable was taken; just my sunglasses (which was dirt cheap and was scratched anyway) and a few gold coins ($2 and $1 coins for you non-Aussies).
Josh had soccer training that night so parked his car in the city, on Burke Street; a rather busy street. It was only after his training session, did he realize his car had been searched. He opened his boot to put his soccer gear in and found the contents of his work bag scattered. His car door has been unlocked and the glove compartment in the car was left wide opened.
I'm glad I wasn't with him at the time, I would have freaked out!
It was a good thing that we didn't have anything valuable in the car but this incident has left us quite perturbed.
Josh is definitely going to get a good car alarm system installed soon!!!
