Ms Sargent claimed the alleged assault occurred near the Ogmore river while the second happened at Mr Chicken’s home.
Ms Sargent alleged that Jak Kahn exited his Ute and advanced on Mr Chicken with a chain before his Father Aaron joined with a baseball bat.
According to Ms Sargent, the alleged attack caused Mr Chicken serious injury including a depressed skull, which cause blood and bruising to the brain.
An ambulance was immediately called after Mr Chicken requested his partner avoid calling emergency services because he feared his bail would be withdrawn.
The following day Mr Chicken had a seizure and an ambulance was called.
A court specialist doctor is expected to give evidence in order to describe Mr Chicken’s injuries in detail.
The trial is due to continue this week.
