The 19-year-old victims drove to Westpac Bank on Bradshaw Tce about 4am after celebrating their end of year exams. Darren Tan was sitting in the car when a man approached his girlfriend as she removed money from the Automatic Teller Machine. He threatened my girlfriend with a broken beer bottle and took her money, he said. Mr Tan jumped out of the car to help. The armed man then turned on Mr Tan, ordering him away from the car the offender then jumped in and drove off. I was thinking more for the safety of my girlfriend, Mr Tan said. I wasnt scared, I just wanted to get my girlfriend out of the way and just let the man go. The couple telephoned police and by chance waved down a passing patrol van which began a hunt for the stolen Kia Rio. Police spotted the car on the Stuart Highway but a high speed chase was called off when the police pursuit reached speeds above 150km/h. A tip-off from a resident at Belyuen led officers to a house at the community where police arrested an 18-year-old man and recovered the car. Investigators said the couple acted bravely by handing over the cash and car. Theyve minimised harm to themselves. Your property is definitely not worth more than your life, its possible the alleged offender was just looking for a vehicle to return home, Detective Sergeant Wayne Newell said. Mr Tans girlfriend was not harmed. His friend, who lent the couple the vehicle, has come to terms with the car being stolen. Hes fairly right with it, things happen and hes not exactly angry with me, Mr Tan said. Detectives expect to charge the man with armed robbery and traffic offences. Bullying workshop set to stamp out peer pressure DARWIN teachers will attend a workshop to help students deal with bullying. Peer Support Australia general manager Sharon Austin said nearly half of all students are subject to some form of bullying in the school playground. But she said early intervention at the time of the incident can help stop many incidents. Families know all too well what happens when their childs peers are negative. Their child becomes withdrawn, and sometimes inexplicably unwell. Pair now facing court over city nightclub fracas By EMILY WATKINS TWO men allegedly involved in a six-on-one brawl at a Darwin club have pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault. Jonas Eveness Ralph Lewin and Gilbert Raymond were allegedly involved in the brawl that left a man with bruising, lumps on his head and continuing problems with his sight. Darwin Magistrates Court heard this week Mr Lewin and Mr Raymond were charged with aggravated assault under the common purpose doctrine. The prosecutor could not prove which alleged offender inflicted which injuries. Daniel Good, Daly Raymond and Jason Michael Davern-Raymond have entered guilty pleas to aggravated assault charges, and one other man in CCTV foot age of the alleged fight has not been identified. Prosecutor Steve Ledek said Mr Lewin punched the alleged victim to the head. He fell into a door before he was set upon by other alleged offenders in the early hours of June 5. Mr Ledek alleged Mr Raymond kicked the man on the ground. Magistrate Tanya Fong Lim ruled they did have a case to answer. Township praised for its top firefighting skills Bob Rennie AN NT township was threatened when a fire raged for nine hours on Thursday. Volunteer firefighters and other members of the community battled the blaze until it was brought under control. They then stayed up all night to ensure it didnt reignite. Superintendent Bob Rennie praised the effort. They did an excel lent job, he said. Nobody was hurt and no property damaged as the fire burnt just south of Elliott, 700km south of Darwin.
