Knockout blow


A RYE man was assaulted as he walked home along Government Rd, Rye, 11.35pm, Tuesday.

The 65-year-old had been celebrating Australia Day at his daughter’s house and at Rye RSL.

He told police a white coloured sedan, possibly a Camry, slowed as it passed him and an occupant threw an egg at him. Words were exchanged and the car slowed, did a U-turn, and pulled up beside him. The occupants got out and knocked the man unconscious.

A passer-by found the man on the nature strip and called an ambulance. He was treated at Frankston hospital for cuts to the head and released Wednesday.
