Men to face court after affray at Terrigal

Two men have been charged following an alleged affray at Terrigal Beach earlier this week.

Officers attached with Brisbane Water Proactive Crime Unit issued move-on directions to a large group of people about 10pm on Tuesday (1 December 2020), after they were found in possession of alcohol and creating a disturbance near Terrigal Beach.

A short time later, a man from the group was seen allegedly assaulting another person in a carpark nearby. He then left the scene.

Another man also attempted to leave but was stopped by police.

The 18-year-old man was arrested and, when searched, was found to be carrying two resealable bags of cocaine.

He was charged with not comply with direction given by police officer, resist or hinder police officer in the execution of duty, possess prohibited drug, and supply prohibited drug.

A second man, also aged 18, presented himself to Gosford Police Station earlier today (Friday 4 December 2020), and has now been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and affray.

Both men have been granted conditional bail to appear at Gosford Local Court on Thursday 14 January 2021.
