Bikies nabbed in Melbourne raids consider themselves ‘untouchable’, cops tell court

THUMPERRRR's picture

TWO Rebels bikies ran down a member of the Comancheros after bashing him at a family restaurant in one of three public attacks in recent weeks, a court has heard.

Clayton Foelmli, 24, and Dale Moore, 33, are behind bars on a string of assault charges after raids on several Melbourne homes by Victoria Police’s anti-bikie taskforce this morning.

Detective Senior Constable Emma Hayes told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court this afternoon the men were arrested over three separate attacks in the past month.

“The pair have a total disregard for others in the community and have an untouchable mentality,” Sen-Constable Hayes said.

Magistrate Julie Ann O’Donnell heard Mr Foelmli and Mr Moore set upon a patron at the Sandown Park Hotel in Noble Park at 6.30pm on October 1, telling him “no one f---s with our club.”

The victim didn’t report the incident to police but it was captured on CCTV, the court heard.

On October 5, the pair were allegedly captured on CCTV approaching a member of the Comancheros motorcycle gang, with Mr Moore producing a silver knife.

Sen-Constable Hayes said Mr Foelmli and Mr Moore returned to the restaurant on October 12 carrying a black satchel, and asked staff to be seated outside.

There they allegedly approached Comanchero Elvin Bafto and punched him before a fight broke out around terrified patrons.

Mr Bafto was allegedly shown the contents of the satchel and immediately “took two steps back.”

“It is unknown what was in the satchel,” Sen-Constable Hayes said.

Ms O’Donnell heard the two men were driving away in a silver Chrysler as Mr Bafto walked towards it when he was allegedly struck and rolled over the bonnet.

The vehicle did a U-turn and Mr Foelmli made a gun gesture with his hands and drove away.

CCTV captured patrons fleeing the restaurant in fear, the court heard.

“They are clearly endangering the safety and welfare of the public,” Sen-Constable Hayes said.

Mr Foelmli did not apply for bail, but requested urgent medical attention for bleeding to his brain.

Mr Moore was refused bail after promising Ms O’Donnell he would abide by strict conditions.

They are both due to face court again later this month
