Windows smashed after Murray Street dispute

A 25-YEAR-OLD Roseworthy man has been arrested in relation to a “disturbance” at a Gawler tattoo parlour on Friday afternoon, which resulted in several windows being smashed.

Police say they were called to the Murray Street business just after 4pm following reports of a man causing a disturbance there.

The man allegedly smashed several windows of the tattoo parlour using a carpet stretcher’s tool, which was left at the scene, a police spokesperson has said.

Witnesses at the scene said that a fight appeared to break out in the tattoo parlour, with one man ending up with a fat lip and bruises as a result.

Following police investigations, the Roseworthy man was arrested on Saturday morning and charged with property damage and assault.

He appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates’ Court on Monday, where he received bail to return to the court on January 15.

Police say the incident was not random, and the people involved are known to each other.

One witness said he was drawn to the incident, to see what had happened, after hearing a wild noise.

“I thought it was a car smashing into a window or something,” he said.
