Damien Hansen is a reporter for Channel 7’s Today Tonight show. He was filming a story on a family that is reportedly illegally occupying a multi-million-dollar Paradise Waters mansion.

The family, who had a $2.3 million contract fall through on the property, is accused of squatting in the mansion for the past six months. Despite eviction attempts, the family remained in the home, and has only paid $600 in rent.

Damien Hansen was filming a story on the family, and was allegedly punched in the head by one of the family members. A TV camera was also damaged.

Now, police are searching for the accused Gold Coast mansion squatter over the alleged assault of the TV reporter.

Gold Coast police superintendent Jim Keogh said,

“Detectives are examining footage of the incident filmed by Today Tonight and hope to speak to the alleged offender very soon.”

Damien Hansen is one of the 16 reporters for Today Tonight.
