Guards savaged in brawl


TWO security staff were badly injured in a brawl at The Sands Hotel, Carrum Downs, Saturday 25 August.

Detective Senior Constable Darren Paxton, of Frankston police, said three men and one woman were being ejected at about 1.40am when one of the men punched a guard, knocking him out. He was then stomped to the head and kicked and punched to his body.

When the second guard stepped in he was set upon by the other men. The woman ran out into the car park and returned in a small dark-coloured sedan and drove the men away.

The first guard was taken to Frankston Hospital suffering a broken jaw, cuts and swelling. The second guard was being treated for a fractured nose and general swelling.

Police are viewing CCTV of the incident. The heavily tattooed men are described as Caucasian, aged 19-25. One has the words ‘No Comment’ tattooed on the side of his head and a faded skull on his cheek.

Detective Paxton is urging anyone knowing the men, or who saw the incident, to call him at Frankston police 9784 5555 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
