About 4.45pm yesterday a man was involved in a domestic argument at a Catalina home with a woman who was known to him. The woman was assaulted and her handbag stolen during the fight.
A short time later, a unit at Surf Beach Avenue Surf Beach was broken into and the male occupant was assaulted. A 60-year-old woman who lived in a nearby unit tried to intervene as a man was driving off in a vehicle.
