Former Western Bulldogs AFL player, Brennan Stack as well as an accomplice have admitted to the brutal assault of multiple women in Perth that was caught on camera.
Facing Perth Magistrates Court on Thursday via video link from prison, Stack pleaded guilty with intent to harm Tiara Cox and Kia Krakouer. While Shai Martin, the man caught with Stack in the assault, pleaded guilty to attacking Cox and another woman, Sharyce Krakouer.
The attack, which took place on March 20 in Aberdeen St car park was captured in full, with the accused committing horrific acts of violence. Stack can be seen attempting to punch one of the women before she runs away, while another is caught in his crossfire, brutally assaulted by the 33-year old athlete until she passes out.
Stack’s co-accused Martin is then seen dragging one of the women out of the car park by her hair.
Soon after, the pair return their focus to another one of the women, kicking her in the head repeatedly until the police are shown to arrive on scene.
At the time of the assault, police described it as “ferocious” and “sickening” with all of the women being taken to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment.
While all of the women physically recovered, they reported psychological distress.
“If I had got hit somewhere else differently, I might not be sitting here at all,” one of the victims told the Nine Network at the time.
Stack and Martin will face the West Australian District Court on July 29 for a sentence mention hearing.
