The fight erupted around 2.45pm yesterday, when the 55-year-old man attended a drive-through clinic in Auburn.

It’s understood the younger man got out of his vehicle and allegedly pulled the older man out of his car, punching and kneeing him repeatedly before driving away.

The 55-year-old man was taken to Auburn Hospital with a fractured hand, cuts to his face, and bruising to his ribs.

While the younger man remains at large this morning, with police appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident and may have mobile phone or dashcam footage to come forward.

The man is described as being in his early 20’s, of Middle Eastern appearance, thin build, with long hair tied in a bun, and was wearing a blue and gold sleeping gown at the time.

He was driving what is believed to be a 1996 model light blue Diahatsu Charade, with black and yellow number plates and an attached red P-plate.
