Man recovers after being robbed while impaled on stake

BY MICHELLE HOCTOR AND MEGAN LEVY 11/08/2009 1:18:00 PM


A Nowra man is in a stable condition in hospital after he was impaled by a garden stake in a motorcycle crash, then reportedly robbed and assaulted at the accident scene.

A South Eastern Sydney Illawarra Area Health Service spokesperson said the 39-year-old man, who was airlifted to St George Hospital on Sunday afternoon, was originally admitted in a serious but stable condition but had since improved.


The man allegedly stole a motorbike and was riding it along Adelaide St, Greenwell Point, when he lost control and slid into a garden bed at 1.45pm on Sunday.

  • A timber metre-long garden stake was driven through his right armpit and out his back, while a puncture wound was also found on his leg.
  • NSW Ambulance officers said they responded to reports of a man who had a garden stake in his torso and required surgical intervention.
  • Paramedics arrived to find the man conscious and the stake already pulled from his body.
    Nowra police said there was no motorcycle at the scene when authorities arrived.
  • A source said the owner of the bike had caught up with the rider, pulled out the stake and punched him on the nose before taking his wallet and reclaiming the motorcycle.
  • The injured man was taken to hospital suffering internal injuries and a suspected broken nose.

Fun and interesting story. I wonder what happened to the owner of the bike who assulted the guy and left him to suffer or die? I would suspect he is in pretty big trouble as well. It's the oldtwo wrongs don't make a right theory.

Sounds kind of "right" to me.

That has to be one of the most satisfying punches to the nose ever delivered. :)

If it goes to court his lawyer would do well to stack the jury pool with riders.

Different scenario, but in a town near here several years ago a robber was in his car trying to get away when the robbery victim walked up and blew him away with a .357 magnum. The grandjury no billed him.

How would they know who the owner of the bike is? If the theft had just occured, there may have been no police report yet. The only other way I can think of would be if the theif knew the victim. That would make it worse in my book.





He should consider himself lucky that he got off this easy.
