Po­lice call­ing for wit­nesses

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

A PORT Dou­glas cou­ple suf­fered fa­cial in­juries af­ter be­ing as­saulted by three men on Warner St.

The 26-year-old and his part­ner, a 23-yearold woman, were walk­ing on Warner St on An­zac Day be­tween 10pm and 11pm when they came across two men.

Po­lice said the Port Dou­glas man had an ar­gu­ment with the two men which es­ca­lated when one of the of­fend­ers al­legedly punched the 26-year-old in the face.

A third un­known man jumped out of a ve­hi­cle and al­legedly punched and knocked the 26-year-old to the ground.

In the mean­time, po­lice said the woman at­tempted to come to the aid of her part­ner and was also struck, re­ceiv­ing a mi­nor lac­er­a­tion to her lip.

The 26-year-old re­ceived in­juries to the side of his head and three stitches to his lip.

The al­leged of­fend­ers ran away from the scene but po­lice said there was CCTV footage from where the of­fence oc­curred and from an­other area where the three men were seen walk­ing.

Po­lice be­lieve there were wit­nesses and urge any­one who saw the fight to con­tact po­lice to help iden­tify the of­fend­ers on 4087 1999 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
