Assault appeal, Wongaling Beach
Police are calling for witnesses to the assault of a 73-year-old man on Thursday, September 24, on the beach at Wongaling Beach.
Initial investigations suggest that the unknown offender and the victim were both walking their dogs when there has been an altercation between the dogs around 7am.
The unknown offender has then approached the 73-year-old man and his dog, allegedly throwing a stainless steel coffee mug at the victim, hitting him in the face before leaving the area.
Police are wanting to speak to two people who were on the beach at the time and who may have witnessed the incident; a man walking a Jack Russell and a woman who was near the water’s edge.
If you know either of these people or you are the witnesses, you are urged to contact police.
