Second Comanchero associate arrested over bus driver attack


An alleged senior member of the Comanchero bikie gang has been arrested following a brutal attack on a Gold Coast bus driver.

Police allege the man, 30, along with another man, 29, who was arrested last week, were parked illegally in a bus zone that had prevented 20 international bus passengers from disembarking on Cavill Avenue, Surfers Paradise, on August 21.

The two men, both believed to be associates of the Comanchero outlaw motorcycle gang, went over to the tourist bus and became aggressive to the driver before they allegedly punched him in the face.

The driver was then allegedly dragged onto the street and repeatedly kicked and punched.

When he tried to call police on his mobile phone, the 30-year-old man threatened him, police said.

The alleged senior member of the Comancheros was charged on a number of offences including assault occasioning bodily harm and threats to cause detriment.

He was due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court later on Tuesday.
