Two men remain at large after Casino assault

TWO women have been arrested while two men remain at large after a serious assault of a man and woman in Casino last night.

The women, aged 26 and 43, allegedly started to yell at the people outside the house threatening them. They then left and returned a short time later with two men.

A scuffle ensued and the 39-year-old woman and 59-year-old man were allegedly punched and kicked by the 26-year-old woman and the two men with her.

The older man received a cut and bruising to his face and the 39-year-old woman received grazes and bruising.

The two women were arrested by police and taken to Casino Police Station.
