Victoria Police are searching for witnesses to an assault in March that left two women suffering from serious, non-life threatening injuries.
On March 26th, at approximately 2:45 a.m. two women in their 60s were assaulted by an unknown man while waiting for a taxi in the area of Broad and Johnson Streets.
According to Cst. Matt Rutherford, the victims are still recovering from their injuries.
The suspect, described as an Indigenous man in his early 20s, fled the scene before police arrived.
At the time of the incident, he was wearing a T-shirt with a graphic, black windbreaker, dark blue jeans and a dark baseball cap with a flat brim.
In particular, police are looking for a man named “Royce” who they believe sang a duet with the suspect at Paparazzi nightclub on the night of the assault.
“Royce” is described as an older man with grey hair and a beard, and is believed to be associated to somebody in a wheelchair. It has also been determined that the suspect used the name of “CJX” when he was at Paparazzi.
A motive for the assault has not yet been determined.
