Police lay charges after three injured in brawl – Central Coast

Three people have been treated in hospital and a man has been charged, after a fight in a carpark on the Central Coast overnight.

Around 7pm (Friday 5 June 2020), emergency services were called to a shopping centre carpark on Wyong Road, Killarney Vale, following reports of a brawl.

Officers attached to Tuggerah Lakes Police District attended and were told that two groups of people had been arguing before they began physically fighting, with two cars damaged, before they left the scene.

A short time later, police stopped one of these cars in Rotherham Street, Bateau Bay, and found a 49-year-old man suffering a cut to his head. He was arrested and taken to Wyong Police Station before being taken to Wyong Hospital to have the head injury checked.

A knife allegedly found concealed in the car has been seized for further examination.

Around 7.20pm, police attended a convenience store on The Entrance Road, Long Jetty, and found a 30-year-old woman with a wound to the right side of her torso and a 45-year-old man with cut to his right shin and right thumb. They were also taken to hospital for treatment.

When the 49-year-old man was released from hospital, he was returned to Wyong Police Station where he was charged with affray.

The man, from Bateau Bay, has been refused bail and is due to appear in Newcastle Local Court today (Saturday 6 June 2020).

Inquiries are continuing.
