    Wow I was shocked to read this happened in Jindy.

    https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw...tal-with-facial-injuries-20180706-p4zpu9.html

    Two people are in hospital with facial injuries after being assaulted in Jindabyne in the early hours of Thursday morning.

    NSW Police said a 22-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man were walking along Kosciuszko Road about 1.30am, when they were approached by "unknown men".

    The men allegedly assaulted the pair, then fled.

    The injured duo were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics for facial injuries, before the woman was taken to Canberra Hospital and the man to Cooma Hospital, both in stable conditions.

    NSW Police are investigating and have appealed to the public for help tracking the men down.

    Police said one of the men they wanted to speak to was described as Caucasian and about 180cm tall.

    The man was wearing a white jumper and white beanie at the time of the alleged assault.

    Anyone with information was urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the 1800 333 000.

    I'm wondering if there's more to the story than a random attack? I hope so, as random attacks are not good for the community

    Jindy is as safe as anywhere. Winter has always had random assaults but this one is particularly vicious. Jindy has a rather large contingent of young people walking home from bars late and is not particularly well lit. It also has a large contingent of casual workers living hand to mouth and the associated issue that arise from a seasonal underclass.

    @Gimp

    What is the twins from Bondi comment ?

    I don't know about ID scanners in NSW, but there has been an increase in identification of offenders in QLD. For example, if they visited a bar and got their ID scanned upon entry, there is a name, and then by reviewing the CCTV of them entering, you match the clothing to the person. Boom, (no pun intended) you have your offender, provided they didn't swap clothes with a random person for whatever reason. A group of 2,3,4 guys shouldn't be too hard to pick out of a entry foyer CCTV. I would 100% support any pub/club that has scanners, in fact they should be mandatory in places like Jindy during the ski season.

    Scum. And this is why so many hate the winter crowds. My kids walk around safely in summer, I ride solo night rides in summer.

    I don't usually pick up hitchhikers, but did stop at skitube this morning to give a young lady a lift back to town. At least I knew she was safe with me.

    Nice in fiction, much more difficult in the real world.

    Any real id will most likely be someone who knows someone who knows someone.

    I pick up hitch hikers as often as I can. People picked me up when I was one, standing in the cold, looking for a lift.

    They really need a formalized hitch hike pickup spot adjacent SMGS.

    I'm usually alone, and I'm not keen on picking up random blokes. I will pick up solo girls though.

    Attacks of any kind are not good for the victims. I don't give a shit about any possible motive or backstory or whether it is better for the community.

    you misunderstand my meaning (I should have been clearer)

    If someone is attacked as a payback or similar then fingers crossed its a one-off. If its some psycho random attack, then nobody in the community is safe

    That is a reassuring thought but actually we are statistically more likely to be attacked by someone we know than by a random stranger. Particularly if you are female. I’d feel much safer if people just stopped acting on violent urges.

    I've always felt the bars are allowed to trade way too late but the alcohol industry is a behemoth, many pubs are owned by private equity or holding companies far out of town and only the bottom line matters.

    I used to hitch-hike a bit too, until a not so enjoyable experience made me realise not everyone who stopped can be trusted.
    That was the last time I hitched and as a driver I have become a coward.
    On my snow trips I have only ever picked up 1 person - a bloke heading down from the main range pulling a sled loaded with camping gear. Drove him from Perisher to Sawpit Creek.

    Otherwise I an just too wary.

    My mates older brother (big big man.....6'8' gorilla) used to throw many coward punchers out (literally) onto the street (they flew over the sidewalk onto the street every weekend) on his night job at Banjo Pattersons after working / building skitube. Was wild mid to late 80s.

    Edit: You had to be bad to get thrown out by Steve, but if you did........man you were'nt going to harm anyone else after.

    Seriously, how many dudes wear white jumpers and white beanies? Should be an easy catch with that alone.

    Wouldn't you have been under age in the 80's during skitube build? Or did you pay Steve to let you in? ;)

    Not in 98,99. Though there was the summer night where someone tried to kill themselves by bashing their head against a downstairs window till it broke.

    No, AJ sold it in early 99 and moved back to South Australia (I think that's where they went). If I remember rightly it was taken over by a brother/sister combo who gave it a reno/new name and ran it into the ground. (I should have said just 98 in my earlier post).

    I started working there early 98 - the weekend of the fire near the park entrance. Finished up when AJ sold.

    Mad fun hectic but not violent until it changed hands and went a bit "footy thug", about 89.

    Epic place in the early days, raw and free.

    Somehow it developed differently to Bright, I think more mountain staff live in town but in Victoria more stay on the hill. Also Bright is further from the resorts, doesn't have lots of late trading beer barn type bars. There has been considerable development of svcommoaccomm in Victorian resorts as they are structurally not in national parks.

    Brendan's Bar and Bistro. Home of the 'Outrageous Rump'. A full 1000g if you were prepared to take it on. No prize for doing so other than bragging rights with your mates. You ate dinner and then hit the disco dance floor all at the one spot. Lots of fun.

    Hardly surprising at all to read this article. This sort of thing happens at least a few times each season. When you have thousands of winter staff that come in from all over the world every season, there are bound to be a few bad eggs.

    Well we posted on Backcountry.....but it seems it was a non issue to that lot....so we observe that Jindy seems to have a reputation....some unsavoury characters up that way.....

    Team Bears say stop "horsing around "up there and bring the culprits to justice!
    It's becoming a town of lawless activity!
    Wheels and car parts being stolen at DHG right under the noses of Backcountry users!

    No wonder the cops are "cracking" down with roadside drug testing and booze buses.
    Raping and pillaging cannot be tolerated .....
