VIOLENT NIGHT: Woman assaulted in bar attack

POLICE are investigating yet another violent night on Warwick streets, which ended with a brawl involving dozens of people and two pub patrons taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The Daily News this week reported on a massive brawl that spilled down the Warwick CBD in the early hours of Sunday morning, but it's now revealed a similar event occurred exactly a week earlier.

In the early hours of October 8, police were called to the Horse and Jockey Hotel where a woman had been kicked so forcefully, her leg was broken.

Outside the pub a short time later, a man was knocked unconscious and taken to hospital with a head injury.

Police said they had no evidence to suggest the two assaults were related.

No charges have been laid in relation to either attack but the 43-year-old woman has made a complaint to police and will require surgery to her leg.

Warwick police officer in charge Jamie Deacon said the man (from the second attack that night) was released from hospital later that morning and police were reviewing CCTV footage of the scene.

Detective Senior Constable Glen Roche said police were appealing for witnesses to the assault on the woman and asked anyone with information to call Warwick CIB on 46604420.

The violent attacks preceded a massive brawl which occurred outside the venue after closing time.

The brawl involved up to 60 people and saw two men charged.

Last weekend another brawl outside the venue moved its way along Palmerin St to Leslie Park and involved up to 50 people.

Outnumbered police stood back and attempted to calm the situation before issuing several tickets to offenders.
