The descriptions of the skin colours and builds is a bit different (2 black, 1 white men as opposed to 3 black men) but it's a bit wierd to have two lots of three men attacking a home and its owner (seemingly randomly as reported) in one day surely? Fairfax Drive and York Road - both areas frequented by similar citizens.. One lot with knives and the other lot with a baseball bat and claw hammer. What is going on?!

As far as I'm concerned I'd feel a lot happier if police resources concentrated on these no-go areas than Mayhem nightclub.
