Man hospitalised after carpark brawl: cops


    A man who attempted to break up an alleged assault in a Sydney carpark has been hospitalized with a broken arm and head injuries. Police were called to an apartment block on Punchbowl Road in Punchbowl at 4.30pm on Saturday following reports of an assault. A 21-year-old man was allegedly punched in the face by a 43-year-old man while he attempted to park his car, police were told.


    A 26-year-old man attempted to help the younger man but was pushed over by, the older man before he was struck “several times” in the face, police allege. A NSW Police spokesman said the 43-year-old allegedly swung a chain at both men before he used a spirit level to hit the 26-year-old in the forearm and leg, causing severe injuries. “The man also allegedly damaged a vehicle and a building with the spirit level,” the spokesman said.

    A short time later, the older man was arrested and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, common assault, affray, armed with intent to commit an indictable offence, destroy or damage property, and stalk/ intimidate fear physical harm (personal). The man appeared before Parramatta Local Court on Sunday.
