Mr Wansbrough has clocked A up 32 years walking the beat in the city. He says the brutality involved in the attacks is some of the worst he has seen. ‘‘There have always been punch-ups but what is most concerning is the level of the increase, the level of violence, the increase in the grievous kind of assault,’’ he said. ‘‘It just blows me away that people are so prepared to stomp on the heads and limbs of others while they are laying on the ground.

Debbie Bisnella wears the scars of the bushfi re disaster but could manage a painful smile after her miraculous escape with boyfriend Adam Zampelis As a strong regional newspaper, we have a duty to bring tough issues to the fore and the rising tide of street violence is just such an issue. The statistics are shocking. In the space of one year, 83 people were victims of grievous assaults. That’s 14 more than the previous year’s 69. And those are only the ones reported to police. As a community, we have let this happen. Last year localmen Wayde Corlett and Simon Plowright organised a march on Devon St to reclaim the streets after a spate of late-night bashings. But one year on, and the situation is worse. Enough is enough. It’s time for action.We own the right to walk at night without fear of being attacked by violent thugs with no interest the community in which they live, let alone a future for themselves.
