Rabbitohs fan sought for clues on Fairlight fracas

Detectives from Northern Beaches Police Area Command are again appealing for witnesses to the Australia Day fracas at Fairlight earlier this year with two more people now thought to be able to fill in some gaps.

The incident occurred on West Esplanade, Manly, about 7.10pm on Tuesday 26 January 2021, and left an 18-year-old man with a fractured eye socket and a broken nose.

This was our report at the time. 

Five youths, all males, have been charged over the assault and remain before the court. As inquiries continue, detectives are seeking the identity of a further two youths who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The first young person has been described as tall, with an olive complexion and at the time of the incident he was wearing a black T-shirt, black track pants and dark sneakers with a black cap.

The second youth has been described as Asian in appearance with a white T-shirt, black football shorts with a white Rabbitohs logo on the left leg, and white shoes.

If anyone has any information that could assist Northern Beaches police, they are encouraged to call Dee Why Police Station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
