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
