Ho­tel brawl forces restau­rant to close

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A COTTES­LOE beach­side restau­rant op­er­a­tor had to shut shop and had her 4WD win­dow smashed af­ter fight­ing Ocean Beach Ho­tel pa­trons spilled into ad­ja­cent Eric Street about 5.30pm on Sun­day.

“They were very drunk peo­ple and I closed my win­dows and shop,” Ocean Spice Thai owner Marie Grace told the West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly.

Ms Grace said she saw three or four men aged 20 to 30 be­ing told by se­cu­rity staff “go, we’re call­ing the po­lice now”, be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rived about 6.20pm, but no am­bu­lances at­tended.

She said nearby busi­nesses found it dif­fi­cult to trade be­cause of drunk­en­ness and long queues to the ho­tel on Sun­days.

A po­lice spokes­woman said sev­eral men told to leave the ho­tel be­came in­volved in a dis­tur­bance, dur­ing which one struck a car with his fist and broke its rear win­dow.

He had dark hair and wore an open white shirt, black shorts and dark shoes.

The ho­tel de­clined to com­ment.

Noelle Martin ad­mits her so­cial me­dia ex­pe­ri­ence has caused a lot of pain but still ac­tively uses so­cial me­dia.
