Police said the attack in May marked the first time taxi drivers were attacked by armed gangs in the city.

Witnesses alleged a group of more than 30 people, including taxi drivers and others, attacked two cars with sticks and bricks in the east of the broome town of Latham at about 2.30pm on May 17.

There were no signs of forced entry into any buildings in the area, according to police who interviewed the driver 바카라after being tipped off by witnesses.

The attorney who took the case also denies any connection with the attack in the broome, saying he was driving the car when it was attacked.

Counsel assisting the investigation for City of Sydney Police, Mark Williams, told the ABC the attack was a "frighteningly violent situation".

"There was no intention of hitting the taxi driver or anyone else," he said.

"And it was a deliberate act더킹카지노 against the driver for his own protection.

"The driver was trying to break a number of glass panes that were there in some of the buildings there an우리카지노d he was shot three times."

"We had one vehicle get away at the end of the day and at night we got people attacking more vehicles."

He said that before the attack there had been three separate attacks on taxi drivers, all being targeted by gangs in Latham.

"It's not a coincidence that these events are occurring at the same time that gang-related crime is increasing exponentially across Sydney," he said.

"The increase and the number of people taking up arms in response to gang violence is not surprising."

Counsel assisting the investigation is requesting a court to make a ruling that the driver may be a witness to the attack as the attack was reported to have happened in the area.
