Police believe the people in the below vision may be able to assist with enquiries, and are appealing to anyone who recognises them to come forward.
Sunshine Coast District CIB Officer in Charge Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Mansfield said police would not tolerate violence in the Noosa community.
“Everyone deserves to make it home safe from a night out,” Detective Senior Sergeant Mansfield said.
“Assaults of this nature, especially those resulting in head injuries, can lead to life-long consequences for both offenders and victims. One punch or kick or push really can kill.
