A newly married couple who would not want their faces shown told 9News that they were on tour buses with their wedding guests when they were mugged.
“It was horrible – there were people on the ground getting their heads kicked. It was disgusting,” they said.
Several cars were vandalized, mirrors broken off and used as weapons.

Today the top WA police officer called for action against the party bus industry.
“These operators … I’ll bring them to your attention immediately,” said Com. Dawson said.
“If you keep doing business like this, you will find a police car following you – and your patrons will receive very heavy police operations.”
He urges party bus operators and their drivers to be held liable for criminal charges.
