UPDATE Friday 2:30pm:

Police have announced that they have charged a 24-year-old man, understood to be footballer Liam Jurrah (pictured), with four counts of aggravated assault and a 32-year-old man with three counts of aggravated assault.

“Both men have been remanded in custody and will appear in the Alice Springs Magistrates Court on Tuesday 2 April,” said Detective Senior Sergeant Malley.

The new police statement says five, not three, women had allegedly been assaulted.

 

FIRST REPORT:

Footballer Liam Jurrah (pictured) is understood to be one of two men in police custody after what police describe as a violent incident yesterday morning.

Police Superintendent Brent Warren says three women were allegedly assaulted outside the 24 Hour Store on Gap Road.

They received medical treatment and have since been discharged from hospital.

"Injuries range from scratches and bruises through to facial injuries," says Supt Warren in a media release, and investigations are continuing.

No charges have been laid so far and police have asked anyone in the vicinity of the store at around 3am to contact them on 131444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
