    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 a 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. Fortunately the cut did not appear to be severe.

    The suspect however 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 clumsy bastard."

    Just thought I'd post a reminder about Bushfires today,
    at present there's one burning out of control north of Boorowa,
    started east of Murringo & has closed the road between Boorowa & Cowra, still heading east toward Crookwell,
    it's gunna be awhile before they tame this one!, country through there is pretty wild & woolly, hopefully doesn't take any lives, still listed as outa control
    I grew up on one of the properties - 'Geegullalong', I'll be wondering whether it's still there?
    Guess just be aware people, it's that time of the year!
    Cheers
