Seven OMCG gang members charged over serious assaults

Gang Crime Squad officers have charged seven members of the Comanchero OMCG as part of the 

investigation into the serious assaults of two adult men at a Muay Thai fight event hosted at the 

Kingsway Sporting Complex in Madeley during the evening of Saturday 15 November 2014.

Police will allege that a 38 year old man was confronted by several members of the Comanchero 

OMCG as he was attempting to leave the venue. It was at this time he was set upon, being punched 

and kicked until he fell to the ground. The assault continued with the victim being further beaten as he 

lay on the floor. A bystander who witnessed the incident attempted to stop the attack by placing 

himself between the victim and the group only to be assaulted himself. Both men received significant 

head injuries requiring medical treatment. 

In the early morning of Wednesday 26 November 2014 Police executed a number of search warrants 

on identified addresses in the suburbs of Warnbro, Byford, Stirling, Clarkson, Medina, Mirrabooka and 

East Perth resulting in the apprehension of seven suspects over the alleged assaults. Subsequent 

enquiries resulted in those men being charged.

Amongst those charged are a 28 year old from Warnbro, a 36 year old of Byford, a 39 year old of 

Clarkson, a 20 year old of Mirrabooka, a 37 year old of Medina, a 28 year old of Stirling and a 26 year 

old of East Perth.

All seven persons have been charged with Acts or Omissions Causing Bodily Harm or Danger. All 

were remanded in custody and will appear in the Joondalup Magistrates Court this morning, Thursday 

27 November 2014. 

Those charged include state commander, sergeant at arms, patched members and nominee 

members of the Comanchero OMCG.

This attack highlights the extreme violence criminal motorcycle gangs such as the Comanchero’s use 

to intimidate the community. It is the intention of the WA Police and in particular officers from the 

Gang Crime Squad to target and disrupt the unlawful activities of all Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.
