ROCK Machine bikie gang member was bashed in his home

ROCK Machine bikie gang member was bashed in his home yesterday by a group of men but is refusing to cooperate with the police investigation.

It’s understood the 27-year-old victim was assaulted at his home in Hammond Park, shortly after being released from prison yesterday.

Police believe the attack is an “internal” matter and is not part of an ongoing dispute between the Rock Machine and Rebels bikie gangs.

It’s understood the man may have been assaulted because he removed a tattoo from his body without asking for permission.

Police spokesman Inspector Bill Munnee said the man took himself to hospital after the incident and was treated for facial injuries.

He said the man was refusing to cooperate with the police investigation and had adopted the bikie gang “code of silence.”




“That (the code of silence) is what is making it very difficult to determine exactly what happened,” Insp. Munnee said.

Inspector Munee said officers from the gang crime squad were continuing to investigate the matter.
