Senior bikie arrested on the Gold Coast over violent bashing in Logan

A senior bikie has been arrested on the Gold Coast over a violent assault in Logan last week that saw a man pulled into a car, assaulted and threatened with a shotgun.

Around 7pm last Wednesday, two men and a woman allegedly drove up to a 25-year-old man on a Logan street and pulled him inside the vehicle.

Once inside, the victim was repeatedly assaulted and threatened, all while having a shotgun pointed at him.

He was then pushed from the car as it drove off.

Yesterday, police arrested a 26-year-old man, believed to the Sergeant of Arms of the Finks Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, at a service station in Stapylton.

He’s since been charged with extortion, assault occasioning bodily harm and deprivation of liberty.

He was refused police bail and will appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court today.

Detective Senior Sergeant Adrian Sala, Logan Major and Organised Crime Squad, confirmed the offender and victim are known to each other, and charges further demonstrated the danger of young men associating with gang members.

“Young men who hang around or join gangs will find there is no loyalty and definitely no brotherhood, and I encourage them to look at the QPS Gangs Exit Program to assist them in making better choices,” Detective Senior Sergeant Sala said.

Police are urging anyone with information about the incident to come forward as investigations continue.
