Shock tightrope find

A MOUNTAIN-CLIMBING rope was found tightly secured between a bus stop and power pole along Marlin Drive on Thursday night.
“I’m not sure if the culprit understands the consequences of this act, it’s putting lives at risk and has the ability to cause serious injury to motorcyclists or to a person riding a bike,” Constable Kevin Listen from Bellarine Police said.
The dangerously positioned yellow rope was found by an Ocean Grove resident passing by.
“I’m not sure why anyone would do this, but it’s extremely dangerous, especially at nighttime,” the resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said.
“I cannot understand the motivation behind this act. It’s totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the police or the community,” Constable Listen added.
Police are treating the incident seriously and are seeking any witnesses to come forward.
“Someone may not have seen this, however the rope is very distinctive so somebody may recognise it,” Constable Listen said.
“This type of offence is regarded as a serious crime for any person to engage in. It puts a person in danger of receiving serious injuries or at worst, causing death,” he added.
Anyone with information should contact Bellarine Police on 52562698 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
