Thank you Canberra. The two men we sought to identify in relation to an incident in the City on 20 February 2022 have presented themselves to a police station today.  


ACT Policing is seeking to identify two men in relation to a Canberra City assault in the early hours of Sunday 20 February 2022 where a man sustained a severe head injury.  

At about 1:15am ACT Policing were alerted to an unconscious 24-year-old man in Verity Lane, near the Alinga Street bus station. Police and the CBR Night Crew administered first aid prior to ACT Ambulance Service transporting the man to hospital.  

The two men alleged to have been involved in this incident were part of a group of four, who were then seen running through the laneway, past Mooseheads before stopping at East Row McDonalds.   

The first man that police would like to identify is described as having short dark hair, a beard and tanned skin. He was wearing a set of dark pants and shirt, a blue jumper and had black and white shoes.  

The second man has medium length brown hair and fair skin. He was wearing black pants, black and white shoes and a white Calvin Klein shirt with a horizontal red stripe across the chest. 

Police urge the two men identified in these images to come forward and provide their details.   

Anyone who can identify either of the men should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
