At around 11.50 pm on the 23rd of January 2012 four armed assailants wearing black masks entered the hotel through the front door pointing three guns at staff and patrons before proceeding to rob the hotel.

Armed robberies of Tabarets are a common occurrence in Melbourne with many such venues being the target of armed robberies over the past twelve months. Victims often include both staff and patrons and whose lives are often threatened with weapons and who often suffer long term trauma.

In such circumstances where a crime has occurred in a workplace the victim may be entitled to seek assistance both via Workcover and through Crime Compensation to assist them in their recovery.
