Nine people have been arrested following an investigation into an IED detonation that injured a woman in Sydney’s inner west earlier this year.

On Monday 8 June 2020, a woman was inside her home on Robert Street, Canterbury, when she noticed a fire on the front balcony about 11.20pm.

The woman walked outside to investigate and when she tried to extinguish the fire, an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated.

The 55-year-old woman was treated at the scene, before being taken to Concord Hospital for treatment of burns to her face, hands, chest and legs.

A 19-year-old man who was also home at the time was uninjured.

Detectives from Burwood Police Area Command established Strike Force Shalimah to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Following extensive inquiries, strike force investigators, with assistance from Auburn, Fairfield and Campsie Police Area Commands and Central Metropolitan Region ODIN, attended homes across Sydney from about 7am today (Thursday 13 August 2020), and arrested eight males, aged between 17 and 20.

They were taken to Mascot, Bankstown, Burwood and Fairfield Police Stations.

Search warrants were executed at three homes in Zetland, Concord and Fairfield, where officers seized clothing, phones and other items relevant to the investigation.

Just before 9am, an 18-year-old man was arrested after attending Mascot Police Station

Inquiries continue.

Anyone with information that can assist Strike Force Shalimah investigators are urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.

Between 10pm on Tuesday 11 and 10am on Wednesday 12 August, a shed at a Port Noarlunga home was broken into and a stack of AEG toolboxes were stolen.

The toolboxes contained thousands of dollars' worth of hand and power tools. All tools are engraved with the owner's name and phone number on the battery clip, under where the battery is attached. The surname on the engraving is "Jongenelis".

The tools are mostly Milwaukee brand, with a few others, including Bosch.
