Man charged over one punch attack on NSW Central Coast

A man’s been charged over an alleged one punch attack on the New South Wales Central Coast which left another man in a serious condition.

Police were called to a home on Fox Close at Kariong around 10.30pm on Christmas Day following reports of an assault.

A 27-year-old year old man was allegedly punched once to the face causing him to fall to the ground and lose consciousness for a short time.


He was driven to Gosford Hospital suffering a broken jaw and nose, possible fractured eye socket and loose teeth.

He’s now in a stable condition.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday at Wyee where he was later charged with reckless grievous bodily harm.

He was refused bail and will front Newcastle Local Court today.
