Man suffers fractured skull after assault in Newcastle

BY LAUREN FREEMANTLE

A young man remains in the John Hunter Hospital with a fractured skull following a one-punch attack in Newcastle over the weekend.

He's reportedly regained consciousness after being punched in the face and hitting the pavement while crossing Union Lane around 11:40 on Saturday night.

Police say the 20-year-old became involved in an altercation with the occupant of a white Holden Commodore who then assaulted him, before wielding a bottle and threatening bystanders who tried to intervene. 

The assailant was last seen on Hunter Street but fled from police, while officers spoke to a female driver and another male passenger in the Commodore before releasing them from detainment.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Union Lane, Newcastle.
