Coast teen suffers brain swelling in brutal king hit attack

On November 23, a 20-year-old Kuluin man was walking along Peninsular Dr with a friend, when he passed two men he didn't know and picked up one of their drinks.
The group argued before one of the men shoved the victim and the other struck him in the back of the head, causing the him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the pavement.
The alleged offenders fled the scene on foot, last seen running towards Ferny Ave.
The man suffered multiple skull fractures, brain swelling and temporary loss of hearing in one ear.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the assault - or has any information in regard to the identity of the man pictured in the footage - to come forward.
