UP to 10 youths are being sought by Frankston police after bashing two men at Carrum Downs shopping centre, 9pm, Friday 7 August.
Two members of the group, which was described by police as Islander in appearance and aged 17-18, approached two men aged 26 and 39, and asked for some tobacco. The men obliged but an argument erupted over payment.
A fight started with the larger group “laying into the two men, punching and kicking”, according to Frankston CIU’s Detective Senior Constable Ashley Eames.
The older man received a broken nose, broken tooth and facial bruising, and the younger man bruising and swelling and a loose tooth.
Police were on the scene within minutes but the group had run up Currawong Dr and along Broderick Rd and escaped. The men were taken to Frankston hospital for treatment.
