An Aboriginal corporation will hold a public meeting in a bid to stop rock throwing in Geraldton and make the roads and community safer. The Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation has invited people to its complex on Eastward Road for a sausage sizzle and community conversation about rock throwing this Thursday. Organiser Zain Laudehr said the event aimed to bring everyone together and brainstorm strategies. “We all need to come together as one to tackle this growing issue before someone is seriously hurt. If you or anyone you know have been affected by this and would like to come help discuss solutions, you are welcome to help us develop strategies on how to deal with this as a community together,” he said. The most recent reported rock throwing incident was on Friday, April 14, when police said three youths aged about 13 threw rocks at a 12-year-old boy and his friends riding motorbikes in bushland in Waggrakine. A fight allegedly occurred between the groups and a 13-year-old received a 3cm cut to his right abdomen and other minor injuries. In February, a Rigters IGA manager reported a group of juveniles were throwing rocks at customers and cars on Durlacher Street. In October 2022, Sen. Sgt Chris Martin said eight juveniles had been arrested within a week for causing criminal damage by throwing rocks. The Mid West’s top cop, Superintendent Steve Post, became a victim of rock throwing when his work Subaru was pelted by a projectile in September last year. Road train driver Jason Anderson was shaken in September last year when a rock came through his vehicle’s windshield, narrowly missing his head, while travelling on the Geraldton-Mt Magnet Rd. The community meeting will be at 56 Eastward Road from 10.30am-2.30pm on Thursday.
