Albany police are hunting three offenders who allegedly assaulted a couple in the early hours of January 30 in an unprovoked attack on the city’s main street.

A male and female were outside the Premier Hotel in York Street on January 30 from 2.30-2.50am when three people riding e-scooters approached the couple.

Police say they were set upon and in the violent attack the man received head injuries and was taken to Albany Health Campus for treatment before he was later discharged.

On Tuesday, Albany police released an image of a man riding an e-scooter who they believe can assist with their inquiries.

Albany police officer-in-charge Acting Senior Sergeant David Costello was appealing to the public for assistance to identify the three offenders.

“This was an unprovoked attack and the male victim received head injuries,” Act. Sen. Sgt Costello said.

“We are looking for up to three suspects, including the male on the e-scooter that we have released an image of.

“He is a Caucasian male, solid build and potentially with tattoos on both forearms.

“We believe the offenders fled the area on e-scooters and we want to speak to them in relation to this incident.

“The Albany community are generally good at looking out for one another and we are asking for their help to identify who these offenders are.

“This is not a regular occurrence in Albany and violent offending won’t be tolerated.”
