A bottle shop security guard working near where a BWS worker was killed was allegedly smashed in the head with a glass bottle just hours before the young employee died. 

The Beachfront Hotel security guard was working at the Rapid Creek bottle shop, in Darwin’s north, on March 19 when he was called to help stop an alleged robbery just after 6pm. 

The security guard had attempted to stop the three teens – aged 15, 16 and 17 – when he was allegedly smashed in the head with a 700ml glass bottle of rum.

The guard was rushed to hospital with blood streaming down his face and needed 12 stitches – six across his forehead and six more in his left ear. 

The alleged trio of thieves fled the scene however were arrested the next day by NT Police.

‘Two males, aged 15 and 16, have been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery for their alleged involvement in incidents in Rapid Creek,’ NT Police said in a statement.

‘Another male, aged 17, was arrested last night and has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery for the incident in Rapid Creek.’ 

Daily Mail Australia contacted The Beachfront Hotel and Bottleshop but they declined to comment. 

The security guard’s trip to hospital was just hours before BWS worker Declan Laverty was allegedly murdered during the final minutes of his shift at the Airport Tavern in Jingili at 9pm on March 19.

The security guard’s fiancé commented on the bloody photos of her partner and paid tribute to Mr Laverty.

‘Rest in peace to the young fella [Declan],’ she wrote. 

Mr Laverty was allegedly murdered by 19-year-old Keith Kerinauia, who faced court for the first time on Tuesday. 

Since the alleged robberies the company owning BWS, Endeavour Group, said that all 16 of its Northern Territory would be closing at 6pm effective immediately.
