The fancy-dressed pair are alleged to have assaulted three Italian backpackers, who suffered serious injuries.

Police said the three males, aged 22, 24 and 26, were driving along Bernie Kelly Drive near the South Maroubra Surf Club car park when a can of beer struck their car at 11:45pm.

They stopped the car and called out to a group of people standing nearby, who were wearing fancy dress.

Two men from the group then allegedly approached the car and broke one man’s nose, fractured another man’s jaw and knocked two of the third man’s teeth out.

The pair then walked away and were last seen heading through Arthur Byrne Reserve.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact Eastern Beaches Local Area Command or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Kayakers have made the most of raging waters flowing into the Yarra River, caused by Friday night’s deluge.

Storm watchers gathered at Dights Falls in Abbotsford to watch the water rush from Merri Creek into the Yarra.

Kayakers had taken to the swell, two spending hours riding the waters.

Capital City Trail near the falls was closed to cyclists and pedestrians, submerged under at least a metre of water.

Dita Pahl, 33, was kayaking the river with Georgie Tonkin, 13.

Ms Pahl said it was for experienced paddlers only.

“There’s logs, massive trees, there was a chair, but I think it’s worthwhile – we’re having fun,” she said.

Ian Wilson, of Clifton Hill, had walked down to Dights Falls to observe the high waters.

“I come down here a fair bit, this is the highest I’ve seen it,” he said.

“A few years ago (during the draught) there was so little water you could walk across the dam wall, it’s a different scene now.”
