Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault in Tuerong last Sunday that left a 19-year-old man with a suspected broken neck.

Mornington Peninsula Crime Investigation Unit detectives have been told the Bentleigh East man and some friends were walking back to a carpark after swimming at Devilbend Reserve off Graydens Rd about 6.15pm when they came across a group of about 10 unknown males by the water’s edge. Detectives said a member of that group threw a rock at the 19-year-old, narrowly missing him but triggering a verbal altercation that resulted in one of the group punching the victim, who then fell to the ground. The offender then kicked the man in the head, causing him to lose consciousness, before running off. The victim’s friends took him to a nearby hospital, from where he was taken to Melbourne with a suspected broken neck.

The offender is described as of Maori or Islander appearance, about 183cm, of solid build, with black curly hair shaved on both sides. He also has a tattoo on his chest. The group of men were reportedly driving two vehicles: a blue Holden Calais VZ and a silver Commodore.

Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or file a confidential report online.
