Melbourne: An Indian student was attacked by a group of teenage boys who tried to snatch his money while he was walking home from his part-time job, amid Australian police’s claim that assault cases against the community have come down following tough action against crime.
Hervir Singh, a hospitality student, was attacked late at night in Ringwood area recently.
“Suddenly, four or five boys attacked me. They tried to snatch some money from me. I ran from there and then I called the police,” he was quoted as saying by ABC.
Singh said he was attacked while he was walking home from his part-time work.
After the attack, he said, he was tempted to start carrying a knife to protect himself.
