A SERVICE station proprietor was allegedly assaulted by a member of a motorcycle gang near Guyra on Tuesday.
It is possible that the Hell’s Angels motorbike gang was involved in the assault, according to Senior Constable Mandy Vaughan.
“A number of men riding motorcycles, who identified themselves as members of the Hell’s Angels, were stopped and spoken to on the New England Highway,” Inspector Roger Best of New England Local Area Command said.
The assault allegedly occurred shortly before 2pm after an accident in the entrance to the Black Mountain BP Service Station.
An argument broke out when the proprietor asked the motorcyclists to remove a fallen bike from the service station’s entry point.
Witnesses to the assault said that one of the riders kicked the proprietor in the ribs.
Police have obtained CCTV footage of the incident.
“There were a lot of big men on motorbikes and we couldn’t discern which which one was the offender,” Insp Best said.
No arrests have been made and police are continuing investigations.
Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact Armidale Police Station on 6771-0699, or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333-000.
