ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to the ‘glassing’ of a 42-year-old Wanniassa man at the Erindale Vikings Club on Saturday, May 28.
About 12.10am a number of fireworks were let off inside the VP3 lounge with one of the firecrackers landing near the feet of the victim’s partner. A fight inside the lounge broke out shortly after with approximately 10 to 15 males involved.
