A woman, who requested anonymity, posted a warning to a closed Facebook group after a man apparently approached her at Joe Broad oval, Mount Pritchard, on January 4.
“He was on the bench near the bridge playing with himself and ran at me with it in his hand once I was close enough to realise what he was actually doing,” she said.
According to the woman, she contacted police.
GUMTREE SALE SCARE
Valentina Isho walked outside her home at 7pm, on January 4, and saw two frantic men in her driveway at Lalich Avenue at Bonnyrigg.
“They told me they came to this street as they had arranged to buy a phone off a seller on Gumtree. Instead of participating in an exchange, the seller pulled out a machete and demanded the cash,” she said.
Apparently the seller stole the cash and ran down Wearne Road.
The alleged perpetrator was described by the men as being of Middle Eastern appearance.
According to Ms Isho, the two men contacted police.
