A security guard from Dulcie’s, Merimbula is in hospital after intervening in a fight that took place outside the premises on Main Street.
The incident took place at around 10.40pm on Saturday, July 23 after two Victorian men were refused entry to the Merimbula RSL Club.
Dulcie’s owner, Mitchell Nadin said that a fight took place between two random people and his security guard tried to play good samaritan.
“The security guard attempted to neutralise the situation,” Mr Nadin said.
However the security guard got caught in the fight and had to be taken to Bega Hospital. Mr Nadin said he had been to visit him at the hospital on Sunday but at that stage the extent of the security guard’s injuries were not fully known.
Police arrested the two Victorian men at the scene and they were taken to Merimbula Police Station. A 25-year-old man from Toorloo Arm, Victoria was charged with two charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and a 21-year-old man from Lakes Entrance in Victoria was charged with one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. They both are to appear at Bega Local Court on August 23.
