Student attacked in Sydney

Student attacked in Sydney

The violent attack on the Indian student took place on the night of April 28, “The Sydney Morning Herald” reported without identifying the victim. He was repeatedly hit and kicked by unidentified assailants.

The police said the student was walking along Amos Street, Westmead, in Sydney’s west, just after 7.30 pm local time when he was hit from behind. He fell off to the ground and was kicked by three men who stopped only when a passing taxi halted to help the victim. Police crime manager Adam Phillips said there was no evidence that it was a racist attack and the offenders claimed “nothing racial”.

“There have been a number of problems with people being robbed and they (attackers) simply belt them, take away  their phone and wallet and they’re off,” he  said. Police are now carrying out a number of operations in the area and had already made 13 arrests for street robberies in the past three weeks.  “Again, it’s because a lot of them (victims) do shift work and are walking home to their units and they are making themselves easy victims,” said Philips.
