Knives, axe, used in a brawl in Casino disabled toilets

A BRAWL involving knives and an axe in the disabled toilet cubicle of Casino Plaza has resulted in a number of arrests and the establishment of a crime scene.

At about 1pm yesterday afternoon two men, a 16-year-old, a 19-year-old and a woman were in a business on Walker St in Casino when an argument began and they were asked to leave.

Police will allege the 19-year-old then produced a small axe and started chasing the 16-year-old who managed to escape.

The 16-year-old then armed himself with a knife and returned with a friend, who has yet to be identified.

The three men then entered the disabled cubicle of the plaza toilets and a brawl involving punching and head butting occurred.

Police officers from the Richmond LAC were called and a crime scene was established.

Two males were arrested and charged.

Police are still searching for the third male believed to be involved, who is a suspect for armed with intent and malicious wounding.

He's described as having a large build and being of Aboriginal appearance.

The 19-year-old, who received a cut above the eye, has been charged with armed with intent, affray, intimidation and custody of a knife.

The 16-year-old was charged with armed with intent, assault and custody of a knife.
