Four Bikie Members Charged Over Gruesome Assault And Kidnapp
Four members of the Finks bikie gang have been charged over the alleged kidnapping and brutal assault of a former member that took place last year in Sydney’s west.
Four men between the ages 22 and 35 were arrested on Tuesday after Strike Force Raptor officers raided five homes in south-west Sydney.
The men are all alleged to have been involved in the gruesome assault of a man at a hotel in Vineyard in December 2017.
On Monday December 18, cleaners at the hotel reported that they found blood splattered around one of the rooms, sparking a police investigation.
It’s believed that the victim was an ex-member of the Finks bikie gang and he was allegedly stabbed in the knee, sexually assaulted and had his Finks tattoo burned off with boiling water during the 12-hour ordeal.
The attack is thought to have been inspired by revenge for the man attempting to leave the motorcycle gang.
“The victim lost hearing in one ear, significant bruising, fractured skull and also fracture to the cheeks,” said Detective Superintendent Deb Wallace.
“It’s been some-time working with the victim to give him the confidence to come forward and allow us to prosecute these most serious offences.”
The four men are now facing an array of offences and they are set to face court later today.
A 30-year-old woman was also arrested during the raids at a Bass Hill home but she was granted bail and will appear before court later this month.
Police believe that more arrests will be made.
