Children approached by stranger in Murwillumbah

Police say a Queensland man has been charged following two alleged child approaches in Murwillumbah today.

Three juveniles have been charged after a brawl last Friday at Goonellabah.

About 10pm December 4, two men – aged 38 and 19 – and a 16-year-old boy were at a home on Allingham Place, Goonellabah, when the house was struck by rocks.

Outside the home they were confronted by a group of more than a dozen youths; the older man was allegedly stabbed in the arm with a glass bottle, and the 19-year-old man hit in the head and body with a metal pole.

The group fled the scene prior to police arrival.

Both men were taken to Lismore Base Hospital for treatment.

Officers from Richmond Police District commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Following extensive inquiries, about 9.45pm on Saturday 5 December 2020, police attended a home in Goonellabah and arrested a 13-year-old boy.

Following further inquiries, police arrested two boys, aged 15, at separate Goonellabah addresses yesterday (Monday 7 December 2020).

All three have been charged with affray and granted conditional bail to appear at a children’s court on Friday 29 January 2021.

Investigations are ongoing.
