Robbed of $50, then bashed for the hell of it

June 14, 2009 
 

THIS is the battered and bruised face of violence in Sydney today. The 72-year-old Epping pensioner, too terrified to release his name, was robbed of $50 and then kicked and beaten by two youths.

"He was an elderly man minding his own business," said Superintendent Peter Marcon. "He could have been your or my father. He gave them the money and they still punched and kicked him.

"What excuse can you make for people like that? They are very serious injuries, why flog someone for the fun of it? It is important that we catch these guys for the community's safety. They don't deserve to be part of the community."

Superintendent Marcon said the man was attacked while walking through Boronia Park at Epping at 6pm on Thursday, June 4. As he neared the war memorial in the park, two men approached and demanded his wallet.

Superintendent Marcon said the offenders were described as being of Middle Eastern/Mediterranean appearance, aged 17 to 21, 175 centimetres tall and of medium build. Both had short, black hair and were clean shaven.

Police have appealed to witnesses to contact Eastwood Police on (02) 9858 9299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
