A man was knocked unconscious and robbed at Rushcutters Bay and police believe there could have been a number of witnesses who can assist with investigations.
About 4pm on 24 August 2017, the 23-year-old man was sitting by the creek in Rushcutters Bay Park when he was approached by three males who requested a cigarette.
Police were told that the man declined the request and was then punched and kicked repeatedly before he lost consciousness. While unconscious, the man’s cigarettes were stolen and his phone smashed.
Officers have been investigating the incident but at this stage do not know the identity of the three males involved.
The first man has been described as being about 26-years-old, 180cm tall, with a large build, shaved black hair, and olive skin, wearing pants and a red t-shirt.
The other two men have been described as being about 23 years of age and of Caucasian appearance; with one of the men further described as about 170cm tall, with a medium build, medium-length black hair and wearing a white shirt.
Due to the popularity of the park, police believe there would have been a large number of people in the park during the assault.
They are now appealing for anyone who was in the park that afternoon or who has information about the incident to come forward.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: nsw.crimestoppers.com.au
