Around 1.40am on Sunday 18 August 2019, three men and one woman were drinking alcohol with each other near the intersection of Ennis Avenue and Grange Drive Cooloongup.
A verbal altercation occurred between two of the men which soon escalated to one of the men punching the other to the head. As a result of the punch, the victim’s head hit the ground and he became unconscious. Before leaving, the group placed the victim into the recovery position and walked down Grange Drive, away from Ennis Avenue. A short time later, the victim regained consciousness, got up and walked in the same direction as the group.
Around 2am, a commotion was heard near the intersection of Grange Drive and Mataitai Loop. The same group were seen fighting at the location. A neighbour approached the group and all but the victim left the scene. An ambulance was called for the victim and he was taken to hospital. He was treated for several facial fractures.
