A 22-year-old man was chased and glassed in Hyde Park on Sunday afternoon despite walking with a group of friends in daylight.
The incident took place around 5pm near the entrance to Museum Station on Liverpool St.
The man sustained facial injuries from a glass bottle and was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital while police search for two men with short blond hair believed to be involved.
Police urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Just hours earlier NSW Police handed out safety material at Fair Day. The warnings included travelling with friends if going out at night, and keeping to well-lit streets.
ACON’s Anti-Violence Project also advises to avoid eye contact with groups of young men, and to remember that alcohol can make people aggressive and unpredictable.
