According to the article, Pistol Point Hold-Up at Balwyn, (The Argus, 1 April 1946) Surrey Theatre manager Len Rossiter was held up at pistol point by two men outside his home in Houghton st, North Balwyn. Late on a Saturday night, Rossiter was robbed of £60 – the takings of the Surrey Theatre. Shortly after arriving home from the theatre, Mr Rossiter was about to put his car in the garage, when the men threatened him, one of them in possession of a gun. They had apparently been waiting for him. He switched off the ignition, though he was ordered to drive further up the street. Then the men forced him to give them his money, pressing the gun into his back. In delay pursuit, the men took the car keys and threw them away.
