King hit helping a mate Tony Russin had three front teeth knocked out when he was punched in the face in a random late-night assault while trying to help a paraplegic friend into a taxi Picture: PATRINA MALONE By SARAH CRAWFORD I did not see him coming, I did not see him running away I just did not see him A MAN had two front teeth knocked out when he was punched in the face in a random late-night assault while trying to help a paraplegic friend into a taxi. A friend had to pick Tony Russins two front teeth up off the street after he was punched in the face while getting into a taxi on Mitchell St at 3am Saturday. The 49-year-old IT manager said he was attacked while helping his work mate Rob Petersen into the front seat of the cab while another colleague folded the wheelchair into the boot. The next thing I know my face exploded. I did not see him coming, I did not see him running away I just did not see him. Mr Russin said. He was driven in the taxi to Royal Darwin Hospital where one tooth was re-inserted and his lip sutured. Police are now looking at street CCTV footage to try to identify his attacker. Mr Russin had been at his work Christmas party earlier that evening before continuing the night with work mates at Throb nightclub. He said did not have any altercations with strangers earlier in the evening. There was none of that, it was a happy Christmas party and we went to the club. There is lots of random things that can happen (in Darwin CBD) with lots of intoxicated people but I have never experienced that before. Mr Russin fears the attack will cost him thousands of dollars in dental work which may have been avoided if there was an on-call dentist at the RDH emergency department. The hospital staff were really good, the two doctors managed to save one tooth . . . they could maybe have saved another tooth had there been an oncall dentist. It has been a bit of a downer just before Christmas. Top End Hospital Network acting director Jo Seiler said no metropolitan Australian hospital had on-call dentists. Extreme care warning after Territory woman dies in rollover A 38-year-old woman was killed after her four-wheel drive rolled near Renner Springs yesterday. The woman was travelling north along the Stuart Highway at noon when she lost control of a gold Toyota Rav 4 near the tiny outback settle ment in the Barkly Tablelands about 800km south of Darwin. Acting Senior Sergeant Will McDonnell said the vehicle was travelling on a straight, level, clear stretch of road about 6km north of Renner Springs when her car veered across the southbound lane, overcorrected on the northbound lane and then rolled. The woman remained inside her vehicle and the car came to rest off the road, on the drivers side. An army medic heading south from Darwin to Brisbane was first on the scene, alerting police and attending to the victim, Sen-Sgt McDonnell said. The medic has since gone to Tennant Creek to help police with their inquiries. The driver, a Territorian, was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the crash. At time of writing the nextof-kin had yet to be notified. It is not yet known what caused the crash. Sen-sgt McDonnell said it was a tragic incident coming only a few weeks before Christmas. I urge everyone to take extreme care on all Territory roads, he said. Police from the nearest station at Elliott, 90km north, attended the scene. The NT road toll has now risen to 40, compared to 47 for the same period last year. $15,000 pool for special yacht rally THERE is nearly $15,000 up for grabs in the 2012 Darwin to Dili yacht rally, which will start from Fannie Bay on July 9.
