Call for Witnesses - Assault - Nhulunbuy

Friday 09-Nov-2018 07:50

Northern Territory Police are appealing for information about an alleged assault in Nhulunbuy earlier this week.

Just after 8:30pm on Wednesday a group of four masked men attended a property in Klyn Circuit. Senior Sergeant Daniel Whitfield-Jones said one man was armed with a knife while the other three carried lengths of timber.

“The group knocked on the front door of the property and hid in the darkness until a man at the residence came outside.

“The men then repeatedly struck the victim with their weapons before fleeing to a waiting car in a nearby street and speeding away,” Senior Sergeant Whitfield-Jones said.

The victim suffered serious injuries and has been taken to hospital.

“We’re told the four men were all of a similar height, around 175 and 180cm tall, of medium build and wearing long sleeved shirts, balaclavas and gloves,” Snr Sgt Whitfield Jones said.

“The car they fled in is described as a small white hatchback or SUV"

Police believe the persons of interest were travelling south on the Stuart Highway in a white Kia Carnival with Victorian registration 1NU3YV. Anyone who may have sighted the vehicle or who knows the current location of the vehicle is asked to notify police.

Snr Sgt Whitfield Jones is asking anyone with footage from CCTVs that face onto Wuyal Street to contact Nhulunbuy Police.

Investigators are also seeking help from the public to identify two people who may be able to assist officers with their enquiries.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
