Police are hunting for the organiser of a wild party at the North Perth Town Hall last month, revealing a teenage girl was assaulted on the street.
Officers in riot gear were forced to break up the out-of-control event, which was booked for “an art exhibition” from the City of Vincent on September 26.
It is understood more than 200 revellers were forced to move on when they spilled onto View Street and became violent. Police said a 16-year-old girl was assaulted nearby about 9.40pm the same night.
State operations division acting superintendent Mark Ridley said police were still looking for the organiser and have warned local councils to be more diligent with booking identification requirements.
“Following engagement and collaboration between WA Police, the City of Vincent and the WA Local Government Association, improved identity requirements for people booking community venues has been recommended for all local governments,” he said.
An 18-year-old Ridgewood woman was last month convicted of organising an out of control party in Inglewood and was ordered to pay more than $1000 in fines and costs.
