The following is a summary from information sourced from a 9 News story:
A Doveton grandfather has risked his life to fight off six thieves raiding his family bottle shop. Bottles are thrown and smashed glass is strewn outside the store. One youth returns holding the sign as a shield. Several of his friends return, one armed with what appears to be a fence paling, and storm the store to free the gang member who is being detained for the police. The attendant, still armed with a bat, along with the other men barricade the door as one youth outside throws the wooden stake at a front window.
