Face cuts after fight
A LANGWARRIN man who objected to having his son’s friends arrive early one morning ordered them to leave –
Police patrol and was allegedly stabbed in the face, Friday 25 August. Detective Leading Senior Constable Ashley Eames, of Frankston CIU, said the 51-year-old Turner Rd man was wielding a golf club when he confronted the three men in a car in his driveway, 5.40am. A passenger, 25, of Carrum Downs, got out and allegedly slashed at the resident with a knife, causing a wound requiring 12 stitches. This led to him later being charged with intentionally causing injury. He was remanded to appear at Frankton Magistrates’ Court, 26 September. Detective Eames said the victim was “expected to make a full recovery”. The victim’s son, 22, also came out wielding a golf club and attacked the men’s car as it drove off, causing panel damage. This led to a heated exchange of texts and threats between the owner of the car and the son over restitution for the damage. The owner, 26, of Cranbourne, and his passenger, 18, of Frankston, have been charged with making threats to kill via the text messages. The owner was also charged with possessing the drug GHB and methamphetamines. The passenger was charged with possession and using methamphetamines. They will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 16 November.
