Images released as part of Eveleigh protest investigation

Police investigating a protest at Eveleigh have released images of people they believe can assist with their inquiries.

About 6pm (Friday 10 November 2017), a number of protestors gathered at the Australian Technology Park.

A police operation was conducted, involving officers from Redfern and several local area commands, assisted by the Public Order Riot Squad (PORS) and dog unit.

Central Metropolitan Region Commander, Assistant Commissioner Mark Walton, said his officers are reviewing vision of the incident.

“As investigations continue we have identified several people who we believe can assist with inquiries.

“Investigators are now appealing for those depicted to contact Redfern Police Station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

“We also hope that if members of the community recognise the people in these stills, that they can provide that information to investigators.”

Assistant Commissioner Walton said he was extremely concerned about the level of violence at the scene.

“The police investigation into the incident is ongoing,” Assistant Commissioner Walton said.

Two women, aged 53 and 60, attended Surry Hills Police Station on Sunday (12 November 2017), to report being assaulted during the protest. The younger woman suffered bruising and a ripped jacket.
