A 77-YEAR-OLD Lurnea man has no memory of being assaulted in Phillip Park.
Mick Hodzie suffered a broken nose, facial bruising and swelling in the assault and received eight stitches to the back of his head after being taken to Liverpool Hospital.
He was placed in an induced coma for a day after the attack on February 10.
An unknown caller had notified paramedics at 9pm on the night of the attack on February 10.
Mr Hodzie later told police he had met friends in the park at 5pm and later fallen asleep, and had no recollection of the incident.
Police said jewellery and a wallet with $150 were stolen from Mr Hodzie.
Liverpool crime manager Detective Inspector Daniel Doherty said details were sketchy.
"We're appealing for witnesses to come forward, especially the person who contacted paramedics," he said.
"At this stage we're still unsure how many people were involved in the incident. But they also could've been [people] he was with before the incident."
Mr Hodzie's daughter Marcea said it was "tragic that someone would take advantage" of an elderly man.
