CSI Prahran

ncis%20prahran.jpgThe Windsor end of Prahran isn’t exactly Trak Village.

Though the creeping signs of gentrification have well and truly begun; with local designer boutiques popping up, the side walks littered with outdoor tables for a bit of fine dining (okay, Mullata IS really the only place one would care to sup at) and reclaimed furniture/ephemera stores galore (Tarlow & Graham is a fav – love those window displays).

During a mini catch up with a friend of a friend, a few eyebrows were raised as we watched a police car narrowly miss colliding into oncoming traffic only to burn down a side street; from where I was sitting I watched a man climb over the fence of a partially gutted building and stroll down the street only to be followed a few minutes on the road by another cop car and a divvy van – interesting.

An ambulance then sped down Chapel street, and the cop cars returned with a man in the car and someone locked in the divvy van (we watched the driver jump out of the car and have a chat with his cargo).

Hit and Run was whispered amongst the tables. Oh….

more after the jump

Strolling back to my car I was confronted with Union St cordoned off. Hmmmm, strange for a hit and run no?

Curiosity got the better of me, so I asked a couple sitting at a bar directly opposite Union St.

Apparently there was a stabbing of sorts, one woman and two men right on the corner of the street. “There was a lotta commotion” the woman said, “don’t know who had the knife but the guy had a lotta blood on him”.

Haven’t heard anything else, Prahran – getting spiffy but still streaked with crime.

    It is a strange, sad world at times but it could be worse – I’d take Melbourne over Baghdad any day.
