A large group of teenagers carrying weapons threatened and have abused members of a sports team in Melbourne’s north-west.
First heard on The Rumour File, Justin and Kate have been told a terrifying incident at a north-west based sports team happened last Thursday December 28.
Committee member for Essendon Tennis Club, Reece Collins, afterwards confirmed the episode to 3AW Breakfast.
“We had a couple of members down at the social club using a hit when a bunch of 14 male youths, they appeared to be of African American descent, essentially approached the perimeter fence and acted in an abusive and threatening fashion,” Reece said.
“Members obviously felt threatened by that which had happened so they called police.
“By the time the police arrived they had spread.”
