WATCH: Motocross thug assaults security at Cobaki
A MOTOCROSS thug who assaulted a security guard after trespassing on private property at Cobaki is wanted by police.
Tweed police said on Saturday, September 22, a group of men on motocross bikes were spoken to by a security contractor employed by mega-developer Leda Holdings.
The security contractor approached a number of riders and informed them they were trespassing.
One of the riders took offence to a video being recorded and was told to get off the property.
The suspect then allegedly assaulted the security officer which resulted in injuries to his right wrist and hand.
The suspect was riding a black Husqvarna motocross bike with distinctive yellow forks.
