Bashed brothers may be charged


TWO brothers injured in an early-morning fracas in a Mornington car park earlier this month were arrested and interviewed by detectives last week.

A 20-year-old Mt Martha man is expected to be charged on summons with a weapons offence while a 17-year-old from Mornington is expected to be charged on summons with criminal damage, assault and using a false document.

A Lyndhurst man, 28, allegedly involved in the incident in the Centro car park on Saturday 4 May handed himself in to police next day and was interviewed and released.

The two Mornington men were walking through the car park on Railway Grove after leaving a nearby hotel. They became involved in an altercation with a group of men about 3am. Both were allegedly punched and knocked to the ground before bystanders intervened. The group then drove off.

The brothers were taken to The Alfred hospital with head injuries.

Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Alex Montgomery 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
