Lollipop Man Allegedly Punched In The Face By Lawnmower Man In Parking Dispute
A lawnmower man has been charged after a lollipop man was allegedly punched in the face during an argument over parking.
The charges come after truck driver Brady Raux posted details about the alleged incident near Cloverdale Primary School on Facebook.
Raux claims he arrived at the school on Wednesday and was told by another parent that a lawnmower man had punched a volunteer lollipop man.
He claimed the man was angered over a car parking issue.
Raux shared confronting photos of a lollipop man's face with a bloody nose on Facebook.
The lawnmower man's employer is understood to be V.I.P Lawn And Gardens.
A statement from the business read:
"This behaviour is completely unacceptable and certainly not something we would ever condone here at V.I.P. We understand this incident is now with the police and will be dealt with accordingly.
"We are treating this situation with the utmost urgency and will see to it that the franchisee in question is also dealt with appropriately."
WA Police confirmed a 32-year-old Kalamunda man has been charged with Aggravated Assault Occasioning Bodily Harm over the December 4 incident.
