A 18 year old teenager at a Wollongong home was severely beaten by baseball for several hours and than the miscreant forcibly tattooed a word on his forehead.
The attack took place when the man went to a home in Albion Park Rail, south of Wollongong, on February 23, police said.”He was also kicked and punched in a sustained assault,” police said in a statement.
“One of the men also allegedly assaulted the man with a tattoo gun, by forcefully tattooing a word on the man’s forehead.”
A 34-year-old man from Farmborough Heights, south-west of Wollongong, was arrested yesterday.
He was charged with several offences, including wounding with intent to commit grievous bodily harm, and supplying and possessing illegal drugs.
He was refused bail and will appear in Wollongong Local Court today.
Two men, aged 29 and 30, and two women, 28 and 30, have been charged with being accessories and are due to appear in court this month and early next month.
The most notable point of this news is that the police has refused to state the word tattooed on his forehead nor they are giving out any details about the unfortunate teen.Looking at the past allegations of racism and the violent reaction in Australia perhaps this is the best way.
Until or unless further details are given out at least the media will not go into an overdrive.
