No charges despite Cabarita brawl
NO youths have been charged after an altercation between two groups at Cabarita on Sunday afternoon.
Tweed Crime Manager Detective Inspector Shane Diehm praised Murwillumbah police for their prompt response.
“Police are constantly trying to address the youth issue and ask any member of the community who is a victim or witness of a crime to come forward and contact police.”
Safer Communities Alliance member Simon Nance said this incident was an example of why their group needed more members.
“The alliance was becoming too Kingscliff-based so we're calling on people from all over the Tweed Shire and Coolangatta to be involved,” Mr Nance said.
“We are looking for one to two members from each town that are not already involved with other organisations and have a genuine interest for youth in these townships.
“We are not about police or youth bashing but strive to promote positive outcomes for a safer community.”
