Kittens dumped in Adelaide's Tea Tree Plaza shopping centre, CCTV footage captures man and woman involved
Two seven-week-old kittens are dumped in a garden bed at an Adelaide shopping centre, and the RSPCA is seeking help to identify the couple involved. CCTV cameras captured the moment a man and woman abandoned the two kittens inside Tea Tree Plaza shopping centre, at Modbury, about 2:00pm on Sunday.The kittens were placed in a garden bed located outside Tunzafun amusement centre. A cleaner noticed the kittens and alerted security staff, who safely contained them before contacting the RSPCA.
Shocking footage of the moments before a drug-addicted driver ran down and killed a Dutch cyclist has been revealed.
The CCTV footage from Melbourne's CBD shows Michael Panayides, 28, driving erratically along tram lines through Bourke Street Mall in August, 2018.
Concerned witnesses can be seen watching on as Panayides puts the public's safety at risk in a stolen Mercedes, but no alarm was raised.
Facebook video shows PNG police kicking, hitting and stomping on group of men
Police in Papua New Guinea say they are investigating footage posted online showing officers kicking and stomping on a group of men in Port Moresby, before beating them repeatedly over the head with the ends of their rifles. The 18-minute video was posted on Facebook on Monday night and appears to have been filmed across the street from the incident.It shows three men lying on the road after apparently being apprehended by police. The police officers then kick the men, hit them with the butts of their guns and stomp on them.One officer pulls the shirt off one of the men while punching him.
Even when Panayides almost struck two separate trams, police were not called, Seven News reported.
On Chapel Street he sped up from 69 km/h to 80 km/h - double the speed limit - and swerved into the cycle lane while trying to overtake a car.
Panayides' erratic and dangerous driving ended when he struck that car, rolled the Mercades and slammed into Dutch cyclist Gitta Scheenhouwer.
Panayides was on his way to buy more drugs at the time of the crash.
'I miss my girl': Dutch cyclist killed by speeding, drug-affected driver
Thomas Kleingris tells County Court that life without best friend Gitta Scheenhouwer, killed in hit-run on Chapel St last year, is a listless, lonely struggle.The Dutch couple wanted to live abroad before they began a family and so travelled to Australia, landed great jobs in Melbourne and got around their adopted city on bicycles. They were ‘‘made for each other’’, they believed, and could achieve anything together.
Ms Scheenhouwer died at the scene.
'I'm going to have to live with this,' he told witnesses who tried to get him to stay.
However he left the scene and was arrested after photos shared publicly identified him two days later.
After his arrest he told police he had used heroin 'yesterday or the day before'.
The scene captured on CCTV is in the same area where the Bourke Street Massacre happened when James Gargasoulas ran down and killed six people in January, 2017.
The homeless 28-year-old pleaded guilty to culpable driving causing the death.
Panayides told police he believed the crash was an accident, caused by him knocking a lever near the steering wheel forcing the car to speed up - a claim not supported by technical reports.
Judge Michael McInerney described Panayides' attempt to pass the car in front as a 'totally pointless exercise', expecting he could not have done it even if Ms Scheenhouwer was not in the cycle lane.
Panayides is due to be sentenced on November 15.
