THERE are a million stories in the naked city but sometimes the naked truth makes people twitchy. That might explain an intriguing little suburban news item this month.
The Mordialloc-Chelsea Leader reported, beside tales of stolen purses and the like, that three men with iron bars “attempted to hijack” a late-model Commodore in a Bonbeach reserve on Sunday evening, June 4.
“One man opened the driver’s door while the others bashed the car but … they fled after one of the passengers challenged them,” the item said.
Funny, that. Who was in the car that could scare men armed with iron bars? A Hells Angels convention? A live crocodile?
