A YOUNG man was savagely bashed on Mordialloc pier, 5.30pm, Tuesday 14 November. Police were told a number of men about the same age assaulted the 21-year-old, punching and kicking him unconscious, before dragging him to the edge and preparing to throw him over.
A young woman screamed and ran to assist – which may have saved him from drowning, police said later. The attackers fled prior to police arriving.
Paramedics arrived and treated the Noble Park man who, despite the beating, received only minor injuries.
Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
