A group of male friends were set upon by another larger group of males as they walked through a park in Kinross recently.

At around 11.30pm on Saturday the 7th of January, 2012, the group of three friends were walking through Thornton Park in Monkton Place, Kinross.  As they were walking through the park they noticed a male keeling on the road nearby. He appeared to be sick, so one of the males offered to help him. However his act of kindness was met with a barrage of abuse and a shove from the male. As the male went to walk away the other male grabbed his hood pulling it over his face and punched him to the side of the head. A car load of males pulled up who had witnessed the incident. They set their sights on his other two friends and started to kick and beat them to the ground. They also demanded one of the male’s wallets but upon seeing it contained no money threw it back at him. The young male managed to escape and run to the other side of the park where Police were called. Soon after all of the males got into the car and drove off.  

The first two males were described as;

  • Possibly Maori
  • Both wearing dark clothing and hoodies over their heads.

The third male was described as:

  • Caucasian
  • Approximately 185cm
  • Solid build
  • Short brown hair
  • Wearing a white singlet with blue writing and dark coloured shorts.
