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.
