Sunday Herald Sun - - News - ANNA-LENA JANZEN

A MAN found fa­tally in­jured in a sub­ur­ban shop­ping cen­tre carpark had “re­peated slash­ings” on his face.

Police have only con­firmed he sus­tained se­ri­ous head in­juries af­ter be­ing found in front of a lift at the West­field Don­caster com­plex early on Fri­day.

It has been sug­gested the vic­tim was known to police but in­ves­ti­ga­tors won’t com­ment on the case.

A Victoria Police spokes­woman said: “The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.”

Af­ter be­ing cor­doned off by police on Fri­day, the carpark has since re­opened, but many shop­ping cen­tre work­ers were on alert yes­ter­day.

Bar­ber shop worker Grant Green­land said the cen­tre was un­usu­ally de­serted when he came to work on Fri­day.

“It’s very creepy to know some­thing like that has hap­pened right here where I work and we all have very lit­tle in­for­ma­tion of what hap­pened,” he said.

Police have not re­leased any de­tails of the vic­tim.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is urged to call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestop­persvic.com.au.
