The barbaric attack of two policemen in Melbourne has disgusted and outraged senior officers as well as Premier Daniel Andrews.
Childcare working and mother-of-one Kayla Potts, 25 and her fiancé Jack Houldcroft, 27, brother Trent Potts, 26 and 38-year-old relative Phil O’Donnell had been out celebrating a birthday in St Kilda.
Police were called to Fitzroy Street about 3am on Sunday after a woman was assaulted. Mr Potts is accused of kneeing a woman in the genitals.
As officers arrived and tried to arrest him, Ms Potts allegedly hit an officer on the head. She was struck with a policeman’s torch and video shows blood streaming down her face.
