Sickening Late-Night Gang Attack On Melbourne Police Officer

Six men and one woman of Caucasian appearance are on the run after a sickening assault on a Melbourne policeman. 

The brutal, cowardly attack took place on Fitzroy Street at around 3am on Fitzroy Street in St Kilda. 

Police attempted to arrest a 26-year-old man who was fleeing police, after eventually catching up with him, the two policemen were surrounded by, and then set upon by a group of seven people. 

Sickening footage taken by a witness showed an officer "rag-dolled" on the ground, smashed into the concrete and punched multiple times in the head. 

“They had that pack mentality, and set upon police who were vulnerable on the ground with the suspect,” Commander Silva said.

“What I’ve seen through this event is the worst of society… they will find the full force of the law is their future.

“Victoria Police will spare no expense to bring the five to seven suspects to account.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact police or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
