Around 5:40 pm on Tuesday the 8th of September 2020, the victim, a male aged in his early 20’s, was at a skate park on Culross Avenue in Thornlie. He was approached by another male who asked him for a cigarette, however, he refused because the male looked too young to smoke.
The male became agitated, so the victim walked away to his car in the car park area. He was putting items into his car when the male hit him in the head, rendering the victim unconscious. The victim hit his head on the road causing a fractured cheek bone, swelling, and bruises. Bystanders assisted the victim and an ambulance was called, taking him to hospital.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation. The male is described as: Light brown skinned, thin build, wearing a white cap (worn sideways), a light-coloured top and dark long pants.
