Two people have been charged after a man was left with permanent brain damage from an assault that occurred in Liverpool in May this year.
About 1.15am on Saturday 10 May 2014, a 33-year-old man and 26-year-old woman attended Woodward Park on Hoxton Park Road.
The pair was approached by a group of men wearing dark clothing.
It’s alleged one of the males armed himself with a baseball bat and struck the 33-year-old man in the head, when he fell to the ground and lost consciousness.
The group then kicked the man multiple times while he was on the ground, before they fled the scene.
The woman contacted emergency services who attended a short time later.
The injured man was treated by NSW Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Liverpool Hospital. He suffered a fractured skull and permanent brain damage.
Officers from Liverpool Local Area Command launched an investigation into the incident and have today arrested two men.
A 20-year-old man from Liverpool was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to person with intent, and face disguised with intent to commit indictable offence.
He was given bail to appear in Liverpool Local Court on 18 November, 2014.
A 17-year-old youth from Busby has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm to person with intent.
He was given conditional bail and will appear in a Children’s Court on 17 November, 2014.
