Police appeal to public for information on the serious assault, Petrie



Detectives investigating the serious sexual assault of a 24-year-old Polish woman in Petrie last year are appealing for two people who called Crime Stoppers anonymously in the past fortnight with vital information on the case to speak with police again.

“Within the past fortnight, we’ve received calls from two different people with information nominating the same person of interest in relation to the assault at Petrie last year,” Detective Acting Sergeant Ford said.

“We really need them to make contact with police again so investigators can ask them further questions to progress the investigation.

“Their information is very important to the case and they can still remain anonymous.”

Detectives investigating the serious assault of a 24-year-old Polish woman in Petrie last year are continuing their appeal for public assistance.

The woman sustained serious facial injuries during the incident in the car park of a council complex near the intersection of Dayboro and Beeville roads around 8.30pm on Friday, November 25.


Additional inquiries have revealed she was sexually assaulted during the incident.

The woman was transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital where she underwent surgery for her facial injuries which included a broken nose. She has since returned to Poland.


Investigators are focusing their inquiries on a distinctive belt buckle with a religious symbol (similar to that pictured) located at the scene.

They are also working to identify three people captured on footage in the area at the time who may hold valuable information.


Police have released new CCTV footage of a man who is seen riding a bike alongside a light brown dog with white markings (pictured).


Two other people seen in the area are also yet to be identified including a motorcyclist and a woman wearing a black top and carrying a black bag (pictured).


Anyone who may recognise the belt buckle, the people depicted in the footage or have any other information regarding the case is urged to contact police.

The Queensland Government commissioned an analysis report into the challenges facing commuters and residents. You can read the report here.

Shane King, State Member for Kallangur, has undertaken a mobile office and run his own survey of residents.”Since launching my Dakabin Station community survey in October of last year, I received over 400 responses from residents and commuters. The feedback has overwhelmingly reinforced my view that we must address challenges surrounding disability access, parking and amenities.”

Shane King, State Member for Kallangur, Annastacia Palaszczuk, Premier of Queensland and Stirling  Hinchliffe, Minister for Transport and the Commonwealth Games consult at the Dakabin Station.

“The remaining community consultation sessions are an opportunity for residents and commuters to place on record their strong desire for change”, he said.

Feedback on this issue is currently open until the 31st of January. “When the community consultation period concludes, I will meet with the relevant agencies around the results and will be strongly lobbying for improvements.”

“Residents and commuters can rest assured that they will find no candidate in the upcoming State Election that will advocate for improvements to this station more than me”, Mr King has said.

Plan ahead for Australia’s biggest BBQ day


Queenslanders are encouraged to plan their journey before travelling to enjoy the festivities on Thursday, 26 January.

TransLink spokesman Miguel Holland said there would be some public transport timetable changes for the weekday public holiday.

“We know many people traditionally celebrate the day by catching up with friends and family or attending one of the many events on offer,” Mr Holland said.

“Most of TransLink’s South-East Queensland’s bus, train, ferry and tram services will operate to a Sunday/public holiday timetable. CityGlider services will also be running reduced services on Australia Day.

“To help ensure you have an enjoyable and safe day out, plan your journey and visit and use the journey planner or phone 13 12 30, anytime to find the most suitable service.”


Mr Holland said regional service timetables may also vary on Australia Day while many qconnect services may not operate at all. He encouraged customers to check the TransLink or qconnect websites or with your local operator for detailed information on planned timetable changes.

“Australia Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate all that is great about our country – so plan ahead to ensure your day goes smoothly and safely and catch public transport to and from your event.”

Standard public transport fares and conditions will apply for services throughout the day.

For more information on South-East Queensland service changes on Australia Day visit, or phone 13 12 30.
