A young man remains in hospital with serious injuries after being attacked by a group of youths last weekend at a party in the disused Yelgun train tunnel.
The Echo understands the youth was hit in the face by a rock after trying to break up another fight, and has lost teeth and sustained a broken jaw. The Echo understands the parents of the young man are working with police with the intention of laying charges, and encourage anyone who was there to come forward and provide statements.
Call the Byron-Tweed LAC police on 07 5506 9499 if you have any information.
A social media post by a parent reads, ‘Enough is enough – our family will not stop until justice has been done and we as a community need to stand up to these thugs. No fear!’
