Sergeant Hawke said the male victim was walking towards Star Bar with two friends when he was approached by four males and king-hit.
“He fell to the ground, hitting his head on the ground,” Sergeant Hawke said.
“He was knocked unconscious for a short period and basically had bruising and lacerations to his face and was taken to hospital.”
