A 15-year-old gatecrasher has been denied bail after allegedly hacking two men with a machete when they refused to let him into a ‘gangster-themed’ birthday party.
Liam Hamilton was celebrating his 16th birthday with a group of friends and family at his home in Quakers Hill, in Sydney’s west, on Saturday night.
The party was reportedly coming to a close at 10.30pm when his brother Corey and friend David Davis, both 22, tried to move on a group of gatecrashers who arrived.
Both Corey and David were allegedly stabbed with a 50cm machete by the boy, 15, and then set upon by a large group of gatecrashers – sparking an all-in brawl.
Corey suffered deep wounds to his arm and David remained in Westmead Hospital on Sunday night with a punctured lung after being stabbed in the back.
