Too much Temptation
The police arrived and had to use two cans of capsicum spray to subdue the 23-year-old and 22-year-old Mossman locals.
The offenders had allegedly been drinking and were in possession of cask wine, according to police, when they continued to throw pot plants at the windows and doors after the owner and witness shut the doors.
Both men have been charged with a range of offences including obstruct police, assault police, common assault, wilful damage and public nuisance.
Police say it was fortunate that the glass windows and doors did not smash and are seeking witnesses to the incident to contact them on 4098 2177 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
“In particular, a witness who we believe is a contractor and had been at the Junction Café and came over, however, left before police could get his particulars,” Mossman Officer-in-Charge Sergeant Ed Lukin said.
The alleged offenders have been remanded in custody until they face the Cairns Magistrates Court on November 29.
