Rahul Kumar, a 30-year-old trainee nurse, was attacked by a group of armed thugs on Saturday afternoon.
Local community leaders fear that this attack on Rahul Kumar could be the start of another round of youth street fights.
Rahul was ambushed by a group of six people who carried bats and metal poles as he walked to his car outside Plus Fitness Westmead.
In the footage aired by 7 News, the attackers can be seen running toward their target Rahul from all angles. Rahul said:
“I was making my way to the car and some random people – there were six or seven people – they just attacked on me with the things they had.”
The attack left Rahul requiring stitches in his head, a broken arm, and some bruising. He added:
“My head was bleeding, my shirt was totally red in blood.”They bashed me badly.”
Rahul, who is now afraid to leave home, said his attackers were dressed in balaclavas and hoodies thus making it hard for him to identify them.
NSW Police told the media that the motive of the attack at this stage remains under investigation.
