Arrests in NSW over Ballarat assault

TWO men have been arrested by Echo Taskforce members in New South Wales over an assault at a Ballarat nightclub in June.

At the request of Victorian detectives, NSW police executed three warrants on Thursday morning, at residential properties in Sydney, and arrested two men about 9am. 

A 36-year-old man from Rouse Hill and a 27-year-old man from Smithfield were taken into custody. 

Following the incident, warrants were executed on the Finks Ballarat clubhouse and a number of men, believed to be affiliated with the Finks were arrested and charged with aggravated burglary, robbery, affray and assault related offences. Echo Taskforce detectives will apply for the men’s extradition.
