Two Canberra men have been arrested by NSW police for the bashing of a 19-year-old Wagga man who suffered a fractured skull.
Another man, 20, was punched to the ground and kicked after he rushed in to help his stricken mate.
Late yesterday, the man with head injuries was flown by air ambulance to Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital after being stabilised in Wagga Base.
The Daily Advertiser has the story here.
Jesus… the whole world is going mad.
I hope the bloke with head injuries is alright. Canberra is turning into a violent, scary place and now we are dragging our shit into country towns. tutt tutt!!
I went to uni in Wagga and even over ten odd years ago the Vic was a bit of sketchy place to go for a beer, and that was even before you added the drunk uni kiddies annyoing the locals on a wednesday eve.
Ah Ssanta, that explains alot…
what til you hear a large component of what now is two was at the Ag. College!
I will admit that we’ve played the tourist pub many a time.
I’ve been drinking heavily at the Tourist many a time, and heard several bands and pairs of local musos play. I remember visiting your band webpage and wondering if it was Wagga Wagga, Romano’s and the police sttaion in the back of a photo. :\
To think, I may have once gotten tremendously drunk in your presence, and not known or cared!
Next time I shall have to buy you a drink.
And we were probably so drunk that we wouldn’t have known.
touche my friend!
Yep, some of the shots are Wagga…
When I read the headline,”Two men arrested over Wagga bashing” I thought I would look forward to the next story if it was: “Two Journalists Arrested for Canberra Bashing” but alas, it was much more serious story.
I don’t want to take away from the issue, I just enjoyed (briefly) the headline. That is all.
I used to haunt the Vic on the very few occassions I went out back there (I’m a Wagga girl originally). At times it was a little rough, but the major problem is that awful taxi rank in Station Place – a dangerous place to be when the few cabs are trying to serve the 3 am lockout crowd.
As an aside, since when was the Daily Agoniser bought up by Rural Press?
Are you in favour of Light Rail for Canberra?
