Brothers in hospital


A LYNDHURST man handed himself in to police after an incident in Mornington’s Centro car park in which two brothers were allegedly assaulted, early Saturday 4 May.

Detective Alex Montgomery, of Somerville CIU, said the man was interviewed by officers at Cranbourne police station but no charges had been laid, Wednesday.

He said the brothers, aged 17 and 20, of Mornington and Mt Martha, were walking through a car park after leaving a nearby hotel when a fight started with a group of men about 3am.

They were punched and knocked to the ground in the melee which stopped when bystanders intervened. The other men then fled in an unknown vehicle.

The brothers were taken to The Alfred hospital and were said to be recovering last week.

Detective Montgomery said the investigation was ongoing. He urged anyone with information to call him on 5978 1300.
