Teen fighting for life after gate-crashed Halloween party turns violent

A Sydney teenager is in a critical condition in hospital, after being punched outside a house in the city’s north-west.


Police were called to the Ganora Street property after calls from neighbours reporting a brawl had erupted between a group of guests and gate crashes around 11.30pm on Saturday.


The 16-year-old fell on to the road after being punched and emergency services arrived to find him unconscious with head injuries.

The boy remains in a critical condition in Royal North Shore Hospital after undergoing surgery.


Police say the group of males involved took off before they arrived.

Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
