Dutton Park Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) detectives are appealing for public assistance as part of investigations into the serious assault of a woman in South Brisbane last month.
Just before midnight on Monday June 3, a 44-year-old St Lucia man and 29-year-old Alderley woman were seated outside the entrance to accommodation on Hope Street near the intersection of Peel Street, when a man and woman approached them making verbal taunts which turned physical.
The 29-year-old woman was set upon by the other woman who struck her several times in the face, jaw and arms, resulting in severe injuries requiring hospitalisation. The victim’s male companion sustained minor injuries after he was also assaulted by the male.
The victims sought refuge inside a nearby business who raised the alarm, when the woman returned with another female companion and continued to verbally taunt them before fleeing on foot toward Peel Street.
Detectives are appealing to the public for assistance to identify the group, described as being of Pacific Islander appearance and aged in their early twenties.
One woman is described as approximately 165cm tall with a slim build and long black hair worn in a pony tail and was wearing a white long sleeved jacket with black jeans and black converse brand sneakers.
Another woman is described as approximately 165cm with a very solid build, long black hair and was wearing a brown jumper with brown tights and white socks without shoes.
The man is described as approximately 180cm tall with short black hair and was wearing a black t-shirt with a large coloured motif on the front, black trousers and black vans brand sneakers.
Investigators are appealing for anyone with information to come forward, anonymous reports can be made.
