An 18-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman have been charged following an overnight assault at a fast food restaurant in Marsden, which left a man with serious injuries.
It will be alleged that the 23-year-old victim was with a group that became involved in a verbal altercation with another group shortly before 2.00am, in the restaurant’s carpark on Chambers Flat Road.
