Thumbs up to the Aussies

Reported in "The West Australian."


PERTH - An SAS trooper collecting toys for children was stabbed when he helped

stop a suspected shoplifter in east Perth .

The 'Toys-R-Us' Store Manager told 'The West Australian' that man was seen on

surveillance cameras last Friday putting a laptop under his jacket at the store.

When confronted, the man became irate, knocked down an employee, pulled a knife

and ran toward the door.


Outside were four SAS Troopers collecting toys for the "Toys For Tots" program.

Smith said the Troopers stopped the man, but he stabbed one of them, in the back.


The cut did not appear to be severe.


The suspect was transported by ambulance to the Royal Perth Hospital with two

broken arms, a broken leg, possible broken ribs, multiple contusions and assorted

lacerations including a broken nose and jaw...

Injuries he apparently sustained when he tripped whilst trying to run after the stabbing.


One of the Troopers said, "He was a right clumsy bastard." :lol:
