The West Australian - - CRIME STOPPERS -

A man re­ceived a bro­ken nose and dis­lo­cated shoul­der af­ter an al­leged fight with two other men that started on a bus when he re­fused to give them money.

Po­lice say the 18-year-old vic­tim got on the bus at the War­wick Grove shops about 5.15pm on Oc­to­ber 6 and was asked by two men for money dur­ing the jour­ney.

Af­ter he re­fused, po­lice say the men started to mock the vic­tim and a ver­bal and phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion broke out.

Po­lice al­lege the vic­tim was punched to the nose and when the bus stopped on Cul­lo­ton Cres­cent in Balga he was pushed off the bus by one of the men and the three con­tin­ued the fight on the side of the road.

The vic­tim fell to the ground and was kicked sev­eral times.

On­look­ers in­ter­vened and sep­a­rated the trio be­fore the two men left the area.

Po­lice want to speak to any­one who was on the bus at the time of the in­ci­dent.
