Police hunt arsonists who torched Commonwealth Games clock

POLICE have released a stack of CCTV images as they step up their search for a group of thugs who set fire to a Commonwealth Games countdown clock in Brisbane.

Three people were caught on security cameras torching the fibreglass ‘Surfboard’ clock at Southbank Parklands during the early hours of the morning on Saturday, April 14.

One member of the group can be seen in the footage dousing the burning clock in flammable liquid while another stands back and films the incident on their mobile phone.

Police said the trio then ran away, legging it through the Parklands towards the Lady Cilento Hospital.

Two of the suspects are Caucasian females, one of whom had pink hair and was wearing glasses, while the third is an Aboriginal male.

Police today released a stack of CCTV images of the suspects with the hope someone may recognise them.
