Hoppers Crossing assault

By Alesha Capone

Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault which occurred in the carpark of a Hoppers Crossing supermarket last month.

Police said a man was assaulted in the carpark of the Old Geelong Road supermarket just after 5pm on September 29.

The victim, a 60-year-old man from Hoppers Crossing, sustained minor injuries and later sought medical attention.

Investigators have spoken to both parties involved, and at this stage the investigation remains ongoing.

Police said they were particularly interested in speaking to three men, two of whom intervened in the assault and a third who approached and shook their hands afterward.

It is not believed these men were involved in the assault, however police believe they may have information that could assist with the investigation.

Anyone with information or who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
