Police seek assistance to find person who punched referee
GLADSTONE police are calling on public assistance to identify the coward responsible for a king-hit on a local rugby league referee, after the A-Grade game between Calliope and Brothers on the weekend.
Detective Senior Sergeant Luke Peachey said it was believed the offender had approached local referee Zac Wilson after the game and struck him in the back of the head as Mr Wilson walked to his car.
Det Snr Sgt Peachey said the alleged offender was wearing a dark jumper and grey pants, and urged anyone with information as to the identity of the offender to contact police immediately.
Police attended the scene on Saturday night and a report was taken.
