Update II: Police seek men after Gouger St restaurant assault

17 May 2019 10:51am

Police have released images of two men they are keen to identify in connection with an assault in a restaurant on Gouger Street.

In addition to releasing the images, police have published details of the incident in Mandarin in a bid to reach some members of the community who may have been present at the time of the assault.

One man has already been charged in connection with the incident, but other people are still being sought by investigators.

About 9.45pm on Sunday 17 March three men were dining at a restaurant on Gouger St when an altercation occurred between them and another group of men.

A fight occurred inside the restaurant with one man assault with either a bottle or piece of crockery causing a serious eye injury.

The injured man, a 46-year-old from New South Wales, was treated at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and has since been released.

Investigators have seized CCTV from the area with footage showing two men leaving the rear of the restaurant, one of whom had a ripped t-shirt.

Other cameras recorded those men meeting up with other people before they left the area.

Initially police released images of four men they wanted to identify. Two of those have been identified but police are keen to locate the other two pictured.

Detectives  from Eastern District are urging members of the public who may be able to identify the pictured men or witnessed the incident and/or recorded it on their mobile phones or dash cam to contact Crime Stoppers by calling 1800 333 000 or online at .

Police also re-issued the appeal in Mandarin in a bid to reach key witnesses and encourage them to come forward.

Last month, on 5 April, a 59-year-old man from Unley Park was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault causing harm, one count of aggravated assault and one count of violent disorder.

He was granted bail and is expected to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 31 May.
