Police hunt men for brawl in Burleigh surf shop

GANG violence has erupted in a Gold Coast surf shop, with a man savagely beaten on one of the busiest holiday weekends of the year.

A terrified shop assistant was caught in the middle of a brawl when four gang members — believed to be linked to the Gold Coast Brotherhood — trapped and attacked a rival in the surf shop in the heart of Burleigh Heads.

Speaking exclusively to the Bulletin, store assistant Stephanie — who asked that her last name be withheld — was working alone in the tiny shop on the Gold Coast Highway when a man and woman ran into the store and begged to hide inside about 10.30am on Easter Saturday.


Anyone with any information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
