SOUTH PERTH

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

KENS­ING­TON De­tec­tives are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an as­sault on a blind man in South Perth on March 8.

About 9.30pm the 28-year-old vic­tim was walk­ing across the fenced-off front lawn of his Anstey Street home when he heard a noise be­hind him.

As he turned around he was pushed to the ground and punched to the face.

As he at­tempted to get to his feet he was hit to the jaw and then re­ceived a kick to his body.

The vic­tim, who is legally blind, was un­able to see his at­tack­ers but be­lieves there were two men in­volved.

He re­ceived in­juries to his face and arm. Po­lice are urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to this in­ci­dent, or who might have seen two men in the area at the time to call Crime Stop­pers or to make a re­port on­line.
