Police are appealing for anyone who can help assist them in an investigation involving a security guard who was injured at a Sydney music festival.
NSW Police Statement
Police are renewing an appeal for public assistance after a security guard was seriously injured during a music festival at Randwick last month.
A large group of people gained unauthorised access to the music festival at Centennial Parklands just after 4.30pm on Saturday 27 September 2014.
As the group was jumping a fence, a security guard was assaulted and suffered critical injuries.
The 29-year-old man was treated in hospital for a ruptured spleen and internal bleeding and is still receiving medical treatment.
Detectives from Eastern Beaches Local Area Command have conducted extensive inquiries since that time and are renewing their appeal for public assistance.
Investigators have released mobile phone footage of a group gaining access to the festival in a bid to identify those involved.
In particular, police would like to speak with a male who is featured in the video who they believe can assist with the investigation.
The male shown in the footage is believe to be of Caucasian appearance, aged in his mid to late teens, approximately 183cm tall and with solid build.
In the footage the teen is wearing a long-sleeved green shirt or jumper, black shorts and black shoes.
Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact investigators.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
