Man’s head split open, jaw broken in savage assault

A MAN has had his head split open and jaw broken after being brutally bashed outside a pub in Sydney’s west.

The 30-year-old was seen being viciously attacked, repeatedly punched and kicked in a savage assault at Centenary Square in Parramatta around 9.45pm on Friday.

Bystanders raced to help the injured man, who was left lying on the ground bleeding heavily from his head.


Thankfully, the Good Samaritans were able to provide police with a detailed description of the victim’s attacker who had fled the scene immediately after the attack.

A short time later, a 25-year-old man matching the description of the perpetrator was located nearby.

He allegedly tried running away from officers but was arrested a short time later following a brief foot chase along Church and Darcy streets.

The suspect was taken to Parramatta Police Station where he spent the night assisting police with their inquiries.

He has since been charged with cause grievous bodily harm to person with intent and was remanded in custody to appear in Parramatta Local Court today.

The victim was assessed by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment.

Police said the man sustained a broken jaw in the attack, as well as multiple cuts to his forehead, a large laceration under his eye, and swelling to his lips and both sides of his face and forehead.
