Man glassed in Traralgon pub assault

A MAN has suffered lacerations to his eye after being glassed with a beer glass in Traralgon on Friday.

Morwell police Sergeant John Roberts said prior to midnight two men at the Grand Junction Hotel appeared to be involved in an argument when a 23 year-old Churchill man struck a 26 year-old Traralgon man in the face with a beer glass.

Sergeant Roberts said the victim suffered lacerations to his eye and eye socket and had to be conveyed to Dandenong Hospital for micro-surgery.

He said the circumstances leading up to the incident were vague, but the offender had been arrested, charged and processed.

Brutal bashing

A KNOCK on the front door led to a brutal two-on-one attack at a Traralgon home in Rangeview Drive.

Two Traralgon men, 28 and 30 years old, punched and kicked a 34 year-old man at his home about 6.30pm on Friday.

Morwell police Sergeant John Roberts said the incident gave the impression the parties were known to each other.

Sergeant Roberts said the man was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital in a critical condition with injuries assessed as critical, but not life threatening.

He said if anybody had any information about either of the Traralgon assaults, phone Morwell Police Station on 5131 5000.

Street assault ‘no king hit’ 

A MAN was admitted to Latrobe Regional Hospital after being punched to the ground on Traralgon’s night club strip in the early hours of Friday morning.

Police were still investigating the incident last week, in which an altercation between three men spilled onto the street from Saloon Bar’s beer garden.

“There were three people in an argument which escalated into a physical punch being thrown,” Sergeant Steve Owen said.

“That fella has hit the ground and hit his head on the concrete rendering him momentarily unconscious, which he regained before he was taken in an ambulance to LRH.

“It’s certainly not an incident where someone walked up and ‘king hit’ him in that sense of the word.”
