GCB: Four bikies arrested in tavern brawl


16 September 2013

FOUR bikies, believed to be from the new gang Soldiers of Islam, have been arrested after a wild brawl at Mermaid Tavern this afternoon.

Police confirmed four men are in custody after they were called to the tavern at 3.30pm following reports three men were assaulting each other.

One man is believed to have suffered a gash to his face.

No weapons were sighted.

Soldiers of Islam, also known as Sons of Islam, is believed to be an offshoot of outlaw bikie gang the Bandidos, which has a clubhouse at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast.

Sources say the gang, comprising young Muslim men who sport "SOI'' tattoos, has sprung up on the Glitter Strip in recent years.

While only small in membership, the gang is coming under increasing attention from police investigating bikie links to crimes involving drugs, guns and violence.
