Security guard killed in attack

A COUPLE has been charged with manslaughter and police are searching for another woman after a security guard was allegedly fatally assaulted while trying to stop an attempted break-in at an inner-city Sydney shopping centre.

Witnesses told police a 28-year-old Maroubra woman, a 33-year-old Randwick man and another woman allegedly punched and kicked the security guard, 68, after he interrupted them during an alleged break-in at the Wendy's ice-cream kiosk in Broadway Shopping Centre last night.

Police said the group, who were with two children aged three and five, then fled the centre. They identified the woman for whom they are searching as Raelene from nearby Surry Hills.

When emergency services arrived about 8.10pm, they found the guard with serious injuries on the shopping centre's ground level.

He was taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where he died a short time later.
