Crime tip: Don’t rob a club filled with a biker gang

National – smh.com.au

Machete wielding masked bandits picked the wrong club to rob yesterday – 40 biker club members were meeting there.

Police said the robbers raided the Regents Park Sporting Club about 8.50pm yesterday, ordering people at the bar to lie on the floor. But the robbers failed to notice 40 members of the Southern Cross Cruiser Club, gathered in the nearby auditorium.

“The two guys burst in with machetes and started waving them around and intimidating people,” said bikie club founder “The Bear”. “They walked in to try and do a robbery and thought there’d just be people playing bingo and poker machines. But there were also 40 blokes there having a social night and it’s come unstuck for them.”

The robbers immediately fled on seeing the bikies approaching, with one smashing through a plate glass window, leaping off a five-metre balcony and running through a bowling green, and the other running behind the bar to the car park.


They seemed to be in a hurry to leave.
