Vile moment a 'cowardly' NSW outlaw bikie repeatedly punches a man in the face

An outlaw bikie has avoided more time behind bars after footage emerged of him bashing a man in a vicious attack outside a suburban apartment block.

Mongols member Luke Owens, 32, was convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm in the NSW District Court on Wednesday - but his punishment was 20 months jail to be served as an intensive corrections order in the community.

Owens already served almost three months in custody following the unprovoked attack at Five Dock, in Sydney's inner-west, in December of 2019.

CCTV footage played in the District Court showed a man exit the apartment who knew Owens and fellow Mongols bikie Eddie Maiaua, 42.

The seemingly casual catch-up between the victim and Owens quickly took a sinister turn, with the imposing bikie repeatedly punching the man with a series of right hooks to his head.

As the man lay bleeding on the ground, Owens could then be seen ripping free the victim's bum bag before sampling a designer gold Seiko watch off the man's wrist and fleeing on foot. 

Judge Penelope Hock labelled the terrifying assault 'sickening'.

'(After the first punch the man) was effectively defenceless, yet Owens continued to punch him to the head and body,' she said.

'It was cowardly conduct …and quite sickening to watch on CCTV.'

Owens is no stranger to a courtroom to answer serious criminal charges.

He was recently sentenced for an affray attack against his own brother Shayden at Rydalmere Tavern in Sydney's west last October, according to the Daily Telegraph.

At the time, the siblings were arguing over $10 recently put through a poker machine.

Maiaua, who was Owens' co-offender at Five Dock, was also convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company by Judge Hock.

Said to be drunk at the time of the assault and acting as a street 'lookout', he was sentenced to 20 months jail, which will be served as an intensive corrections order.

Both Owens and Maiaua will also be forced to complete 200 hours and 170 hours of community service respectively.
