Alleyway assault


A TASMANIAN man, 49, suffered a deep gash to his head during a fight with three men in an alleyway at JD’s Pool Hall in central Frankston.

The man said he was “knifed” during the fight after an earlier argument with the trio at the Wells Street pool hall at about 11.30pm on Friday 18 May.

Frankston crime investigation unit Detective Senior Constable John Melhuish said CCTV footage showed there were several passersby in “a busy part of the CBD” at the time of the alleyway fight.

He appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Two of the three men have been arrested and charged with serious assault causing injury.

The third man was described as in his early 20s, caucasian and was wearing a black hoodie with white lettering on a sleeve and flat shoes with no socks.

A Frankston man, 19, was remanded and a Carrum Downs man, 22, was bailed. Both will appear in Frankston Magistrates’ Court in August.

The Tasmanian man was taken to Frankston Hospital on the night for multiple stitches for the deep wound on his forehead.

Anyone with information should call Detective Senior Constable John Melhuish on 9784 5555 or Crimestoppers at
