Nursing student seriously assaulted
Police are appealing for information after a 23-year-old nursing student was seriously assaulted in Umina.
Mr Kieran Connolly was walking through a car park on Ocean Beach Rd, Umina, with friends when an altercation ensued with an unknown group at about 10:30pm on February 10.
Witnesses have told police Mr Connolly was hit on the back of the head with a baseball bat during the altercation before the group fled the area.
Officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command attended and commenced inquiries.
Mr Connolly was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition with serious head injuries.
Neurosurgeons have since had to reconstruct Mr Connolly's skull as a result of his injuries, removing several blood clots that formed as a result in the process.
Mr Connolly's brother, Tommy, has since launched a social media appeal asking for any other witnesses or anyone with information regarding his brother's assailants to come forward.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Brisbane Water police or Crime Stoppers.
