A man has suffered a fractured hand, cuts to his face, and bruising to his ribs after he was assaulted at a COVID-19 testing clinic in a ‘road rage incident’ in Sydney.
The 55-year-old was allegedly dragged from inside his car by another man, aged in his 20s, during an altercation at the drive-through clinic on Everley Road in Auburn yesterday.
Police said the 55-year-old became involved in a verbal dispute with the younger man, who had also driven into the clinic at around 2.45pm.
The younger man approached the 55-year-old in his car before allegedly pulling him out and punching and kneeing him repeatedly, according to police.
The younger man then drove away from the clinic.
He was driving what is believed to be a 1996 model light blue Daihatsu Charade, with black and yellow number plates and an attached red P-plate.
The man is described as being in his early 20s, of Middle Eastern appearance, with a thin build, long hair tied in a bun, and wearing a blue and gold sleeping gown at the time.
The 55-year-old was taken to Auburn Hospital for treatment to his injuries.
Anyone who witnessed the incident – or has mobile phone or dashcam footage from the area – is urged to contact Auburn Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.Internet Explorer Channel Network
