A 27 year old man is fighting for his life after he was hit over the head with an unknown weapon by a group of men, who police believe were strangers to him, in West Melbourne. The victim was a passenger inside a Toyota which was travelling in West Melbourne, when it was overtaken by a red Subaru about 4.30am.
Acting Detective Sergeant Simon Watts said the victim got out of the passenger seat of a car on the corner of King Street and Roden Street before the assault.
“We’re not sure why he’s gotten out of his car, he’s been confronted by a group of African males, hit in the head and seriously assaulted,” he said.
“There was a weapon, what that actual weapon is, we’re not sure, but it was used to assault this male and he has suffered some serious head injuries as a result and currently fighting for his life.
“It was quite brutal, quite confronting, it’s certainly a serious crime.”
