It’s understood they arrived to find Mr Anderson’s attacker, a 20-year-old man, stomping on his bloodied body in the beachfront park.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, Detective Inspector Michael Boutouridis said officers were forced to use “significant force” to subdue and arrest the “violent” man.

“The assault was brutal – it was quite a bloody scene,” Det Insp Boutouridis said.

“The man we have in custody was violent and it took a number of police officers to subdue and arrest him.”

Paramedics tried frantically to revive Mr Anderson by performing CPR on him at the scene but sadly, he could not be saved.

Mr Anderson’s injuries were too severe and the 26-year-old died in the back an ambulance.

An ambulance helicopter was dispatched to the scene and landed in the park but was not needed.

Mr Anderson’s alleged attacker remains in police custody and is expected to be charged with murder later today.

Neighbours told 9NEWS they heard ” aggressive moaning” coming from Pavilion Reserve just after 5.30am.

“It just kept getting louder and louder,” Kim Luker told 9NEWS.

“Then at 6.10am it was really loud and then all of a sudden it just stopped.”

Gary Anderson, lead singer of rock band Rose Tattoo, has three sons and is heavily involved with a number of charities including Ronald McDonald House and the Prince of Wales Hospital.

The Anderson family placed a sign atop a garbage bin outside their home this morning, requesting the media respect their privacy.
