The incident took place in the area of Perth St. The victim’s vehicle was running in the driveway when Goode approached and entered the driver’s seat. The owner then attempted to intervene in the theft and engage in a conversation. Goode began backing away out of the driveway of the residence and the owner jumped into the passenger seat.

Goode drove away from the residence just a short distance and in that time a physical altercation took place in the vehicle. The owner was assaulted and thrown from the vehicle where he sustained injuries and was taken to hospital. Injuries are described as non-life-threatening.
