A kickboxer and alleged senior Hells Angels member has been accused of taking part in the brutal assault of another bikie who wanted to leave the gang.

Melbourne fighter and Angels office-bearer Kane Montebello was one of three men charged over the alleged assault and extortion of a man in his 20s in the city’s northern suburbs.

The man was allegedly cornered at the home of Angels president Luke Moloney after being summoned to the home at Reservoir so he could return his club clothing.

When he arrived it is alleged the man was confronted on a deck at the property by two Hells Angels including Montebello, the Herald Sun reported. 

Montebello allegedly asked the man to ‘provide him with a reason as to why he shouldn’t wrap the bat around his face’, Melbourne Magistrates Court heard.

Montebello, of Ferntree Gully, allegedly ‘backhanded’ the man who then opened his eyes to see Moloney brandishing a hunting knife, the court heard.

The man was allegedly left with serious upper body injuries.

Montebello, Moloney and and their co-accused Julian Assafiri were arrested by Echo Taskforce detectives in February over the alleged incident and have since been bailed.
