WAKE IN FRIGHT – Friday May 3 2013

– A mystery bomb blast shattered a sleeping suburban street in Narre Warren, leaving fearful residents looking fort answers.

A Ford Territory was ripped apart by the explosion, believed to have been from a bomb, which sent shrapnel into neighbouring properties and left a significant crater.

Neighbours said it was a miracle no one was hurt in the blast, and many feared a plane had crashed nearby.

The blast shattered windows and sent debris in all directions.

People up to 10 kilometres away reported being woken.

The explosion happened about 11.30pm on Wednesday outside an Elstar Road home.

The vehicle’s distraught owners yesterday would not comment on the bomb attack, but a friend told the Herald Sun they were contemplating leaving the area.

He said the young man and woman were asleep when the Territory exploded on their nature strip, and they were thankful to be alive.

Arson Squad Detective Senior Constable Jim Gogorossis said forensic officers were yet to determine the cause of the explosion, but it was likely a device placed near the Ford Territory was responsible.

Senior Constable Gogorossis said the victims could not explain the attack.

The couple, in their 20s, were known to police, but Senior Constable Gogorossis could not say if they had been targeted.

Friends yesterday helped them clean up debris as residents described their horror.

Rob Marotta said the explosion sounded like a plane had crashed in his backyard, and he was afraid to sleep at his own home.

Neighbour Kim Peters, who lives metres from the explosion, said: “I felt like I was in a war zone. We’ve been up all night. I’ve never seen anything like this before.” Resident Ron Ferguson said the blast shattered his kitchen window and sent debris into his backyard – Angus Thompson

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
