More Arrests After Major Coonamble Brawl

NSW Police News

Police have arrested and charged a further seven people in relation to a brawl at Coonamble last month.

Just before 2am on Sunday 21 February, police from the Castlereagh Local Area Command responded to reports of a large brawl involving up to 60 people in Hickey Street.

When officers arrived they were attacked by several people throwing bottles.

Police withdrew and called for extra units and order was later restored.

A subsequent investigation has so far led to the arrests of 23 people, including a number of teenagers, in relation to the violence.

Each of the males and females has been charged with affray and granted conditional bail until their scheduled appearance in the Coonamble Local Court on 16 March.

The investigation into the incident is continuing.
