OBH sacks security after violent death

SACKED: The Ocean Beach Hotel has sacked its security firm in the wake of the death of a patron.

THE company in charge of security at the Ocean Beach Hotel has been sacked, as police investigate links between its bouncers and the Rock Machine bikie gang.

Hotel management moved to terminate the contract of Nightlife Security Services just a day after Perth musician Andy Marshall died after allegedly being thrown through a first-floor window at the Cottesloe pub.

The 29-year-old drummer with local band Rich Widow plunged 7m metres when, it is alleged, he was shoved through the window by a Rock Machine associate in what police have described as an unprovoked attack at 9pm on Sunday.

Rock Machine associate Stefan Pahia Schmidt, 25, has been charged with murder. He will appear in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Hotel patrons have told The Sunday Times bouncers openly shook hands with, hugged and welcomed a group of about six Rock Machine bikies and associates into the venue on the night.

Police are investigating links between the bikie gang and the security firm, which has managed security at the iconic beachside pub for about a year.

Nightlife Security Services general manager Wayne Russell declined to comment in detail until the police investigation had been finalised, but confirmed the company had been sacked.

He said he had absolute faith in his staff and that they had acted appropriately in the wake of the tragedy. Bouncers who witnessed the incident had been offered counselling, he said.

Licensing Enforcement Division Det-Supt Jim Migro said the Major Crime Squad would conduct the initial inquiry centred on Mr Marshall's death. Specialist liquor licensing officers would investigate once the initial inquiry was completed.

OBH licensee Stan Quinlivan and manager Murray Quinlivan did not return calls from The Sunday Times this week.
