At around 8.00am on Monday 5 October 2020 a group of men were acting disorderly in a shopping centre on Belmont Avenue in Cloverdale. Security was called due to complaints being made that three men were yelling at a child in the food court and had been throwing items around stores. The men were subsequently asked to leave the centre by security, during which time they were verbally abusive towards staff and members of the public.


Once outside of the shopping centre the men began throwing large rocks at the security guards. A rock narrowly missed one of the security guards’ face, instead hitting him in the hand as he attempted to shield himself. As a result of the attack the security guard’s fingers were bleeding and swollen.


Police have released CCTV images of three men who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.


The first man is described as: tanned skin, large build, with short brown hair and a beard. He wore a black shirt with white stripes, black pants and black and red shoes.


The second man is described as: tanned skin, medium build, with a bald head and facial hair. He wore a red and yellow guernsey, black shorts and black shoes.


The third man is described as: tanned skin and medium build. He wore a red cap, black hooded jumper, black pants and black shoes.
