Bod­ily of­fence puts punch cam­paign into force

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AN AS­SAULT oc­ca­sion­ing bod­ily harm of­fence in Monto is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, be­lieved to have hap­pened be­tween 12.30 and 1am on May 20, on Flin­ders St.

To pre­vent sim­i­lar crimes from oc­cur­ring, Monto busi­nesses have jumped on board and shown sup­port for the One Punch Can Kill po­lice cam­paign.

Venues that serve al­co­hol are at risk venues of where th­ese of­fences can oc­cur.

And now, Mun­gungo Pub, Mulgildie Ho­tel, Al­bert Ho­tel and Monto’s Grand Ho­tel proudly dis­play a One Punch Can Kill poster, to re­mind ven­dors that their ac­tions could have sig­nif­i­cant con­se­quences.

The cam­paign is aimed at pre­vent­ing sense­less vi­o­lence among young peo­ple and stop­ping them from mak­ing split-sec­ond de­ci­sions that could ruin their lives or the lives of oth­ers.

Monto Po­lice Sergeant Mick Bazzo said the Monto com­mu­nity was happy to pro­mote and sup­port such a wor­thy cause.

“Wher­ever you are this week­end, choose to stay calm, watch your mates and walk away from com­mit­ting as­sault and al­co­hol re­lated of­fences,” he said.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the May 20 of­fence is en­cour­aged to con­tact Crime Stop­pers.

They can be reached on 1800 333 000, or by jump­ing on crimestop­
