STAFF REPORTER

A man has been charged over an alleged attack on a patron at a Murray Street bar this morning in which the victim’s head hit a brick pavement.

Police spokesman Samuel Dinnison said that about 12:20am a man, 23, was with friends walking through the courtyard section of the bar.

Mr Dinnison said another man bumped into the 23-year-old who continued on with his friends.

The second man allegedly punched the 23-year-old to the back of his head causing him to lose consciousness.

The victim fell to the ground hitting his head on a table, and then the brick pavement.

He remained unconscious for a considerable amount of time.

He was taken to Royal Perth Hospital where he is being treated for head/facial injuries.

Other patrons of the bar chased after the alleged attacker, and with the help of bouncers detained him until police arrived.

A Nollamara man, 21, has been charged with grievous bodily harm.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court (Northbridge sitting) today.
