Mother Pleads For Answers After Sons Attacked In Supermarket Car Park
Two men were rushed to hospital early on Saturday morning after allegedly being punched and knocked to the ground by a group of men as they walked through a carpark south of Melbourne.
A 20-year-old man and a 17-year-old teenager, who are understood to be brothers, had just left a licenced premise in Mornington when they became involved in an altercation with the group, police said.
The brothers were both punched and knocked to the ground by the group before witnesses stepped in to help them, police alleged.
The pair were taken to hospital with non-life threatening head injuries.
Their heartbroken mother is now pleading for information that could help find those responsible for the attack.
Amanda Kilner Higgins shared photos of her two sons, Lochie and Rueben, at Alfred Hospital on Saturday.
In a post on Facebook, she said the brothers were 'king hit' in the Coles carpark at Mornington.
"If anyone saw or knows anything please let me know," she said.
Police are now on the hunt for the men's attackers, who are believed to have fled the scene in an unknown vehicle.
On Saturday afternoon police confirmed a 28-year-old Lyndhurst man had presented himself to a police station and was speaking with officers in relation to the incident.
No charges have yet been laid and investigators said they are continuing to urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have information that could identify the men involved, to contact Crime Stoppers.
