Simon Merton, management consultant at MMS PNG Ltd in Madang posted on his facebook page about the incident.
He told Loop PNG that his wife was assaulted and their adopted 11 year old daughter is traumatized.
He said they were allegedly attacked while on their way home.
“We encountered a large group of drunk Navy personnel from Boat 04 who were brawling and blocking the street outside a night club next door to where I reside,” Merton said.
“When I asked them to move off the road so we could pass through, they proceeded to assault me and my family.
