Men refuse to talk to police after violent Broadbeach brawl

The men involved in a violent confrontation in Broadbeach Waters on Tuesday are refusing to cooperate with Police.

Around 4pm, a fight erupted between a group of six men on Bermuda Street following what is believed to have been a road rage incident involving up to three cars.

Three men were rushed to Robina hospital, with one undergoing surgery last night after his hand was partially severed.


Acting Inspector Ben Martain saying police were investigating whether tools found in a ute were used as weapons during the brawl.

“There was talk that a machete was used so it looks like there’s been some defensive wounds on the hand,” he said.

“It looks like the fellow with the injured hand won’t lose his hand but may lose a couple of fingers.”

The Bulletin reports, Police said none of the men have links to criminal motorcycle gangs, but said they are refusing to cooperate.

Acting Chief Superintendent Lacy says police may charge some or all of the men with affray.

A ute involved has a smashed windscreen and a large pool of blood can be seen on the road.
