A PATTERSON Lakes man was assaulted after a night out in Chelsea Heights and left with facial injuries and a possible fracture of his right arm.
The man, 25, told police he and a few friends enjoyed a night drinking and dancing at a local hotel, Saturday (30 January) night. At some stage he noticed his friend involved in a “bit of pushing and shoving” on the dance floor and intervened.
At 2am he left on his own and walked to a nearby takeaway in Wells Rd, but was attacked and hit to the forehead with a metal pole, causing him to fall head first onto the footpath where he lost consciousness.
He came to across the road in a bus shelter where his friends were assisting him. His father arrived and took him to Frankston Hospital where he was treated for substantial swelling and bruising and given a brain scan. X-rays confirmed the fracture.
Police are searching for two men of southern European appearance with tan complexions, aged in their mid-20s, thin build, one short, wearing a red jumper tied around his shoulders, the other around 183cm tall.
Anyone with information should call Frankston police, 9784 5555.
