Gang crime detectives are investigating whether the surprise slashing attack that almost killed Dayne Brajkovich at Kings Park was an act of retribution by his former Hells Angels bikie club, as police revealed ongoing concerns for the 44-year-old’s safety. WA police officer in charge of gang crime detectives Anthony Thompson renewed calls for witnesses to a bloody brawl outside the Ministry of Sound concert at Kings Park on Lovekin Drive about 9.50pm on Friday. Brajkovich was rushed to hospital with a serious wound to his neck following the incident in what police believe was a “targeted attack” — possibly by his former gang. “This was a targeted attack, and the general public has no cause for concern,” Det. Sen. Sgt Thompson said. “At this stage, we believe the incident is a result of an in-house gang-related issue between the Hells Angels and a former member. “The parties involved are known to each other and the possibility this incident is the result of a retribution issue is certainly an avenue we are investigating.” No arrests have been made as police continue their inquiries into the incident after men — who did not attend the concert — fled the scene on motorbikes. Witnesses who were leaving the music event described seeing at least six people involved in a brawl before people rushed to a bloodied Brajkovich who had a “serious” laceration to the left side of his neck. Witnesses described seeing a group of men fighting near Brajkovich before they dispersed the area — it was then people noticed he had a laceration to the left side of his neck. It is believed he also suffered an injury to a finger as he tried to defend himself. Brajkovich was famously kicked out of the Hells Angels last year, claiming he and the president at the time did not see “eye to eye”. “Me and the Perth president of the Hells Angels didn’t see eye to eye on something and I couldn’t get my head around it,” he told The West Australian earlier this year. He rose to infamy several years ago after he brutally bashed late Rebels boss Nick Martin in Scarborough just weeks before his assassination at Perth Motorplex in 2020. Police confirmed they have conducted inquiries with Brajkovich following the incident and It comes as The West revealed the former bikie walked himself out of Royal Perth Hospital before he was tailed by a police convoy. “I assume that the investigating officers at the time conducting risk assessment thought it was appropriate that they escort the gentleman out of the public area to somewhere which was a more covert location.” “When there’s violence in the community, between two groups, there’s always a concern that there could be retribution in the future. “We do have an ongoing concern for his safety, but also any person who was considering assaulting the victim should reconsider that because we are putting a number of measures in place to ensure his security and ensure that any person who does attack him is appropriately recorded, ”Det. Sen. Sgt Thompson said. He further criticised the actions of the offenders and said police would deploy “every resource” at their disposal to disrupt motorcycle gangs. “These immature violent outbursts will be met with serious consequences,” Det Sen. Sgt Thompson said. “If you, as an outlaw motorcycle gang, choose to inflict violence in the community, the result of that we will lawfully restrict your behaviours because we don’t want members of the public being put at greater risk.” “All they’re concerned about is their own self-interest. whatever their reason is, the immaturity in regards to trying to target this person. “ A doctor who was attending the concert was also commended by WA police for their “brave efforts” in saving Brajkovic’s life. “I’d like to take this moment to thank publicly the doctor who saved that person’s life, but for his actions, it’s highly likely that person would have died,” Sen Sgt. Thompson said. Police did not confirm if the attack was an assassination attempt and did not comment on the specifics of the weapon used besides it being a “small” “edged weapon”. The weapon was located a nearby the scene on Lovekin Drive as police continued their investigation. Witnesses to the incident described seeing Brajkovich holding his throat after a “physical brawl”— which is understood to have happened after an argument escalated into violence. Another witness said they saw paramedics working on a man on the side of the road in the wake of the attack before he was taken away in an ambulance.
