Melbourne Man Randomly King Hit Outside Busy Supermarket

A Ringwood East grandfather has been beaten up by a random member of the public.

Bill Buchanan said he feels lucky to be alive after he was attacked by an “aggressive” person in Ringwood East.

“It’s enough to kill you, a blow like that,” Mr Buchanan said. “I’m one of the lucky ones thank heavens.”

The 74-year-old has just left the supermarket when the attacker struck.

“I looked up and I saw a scuffle… one man hit the pavement face-first, then the other man just ran in the other direction,” witness Maree Osborn said.

The man king-hit the pensioner before ran away leaving Bill laying unconscious on the ground.

The attack happened on September 14, and police are still trying to find witnesses who saw Mr Buchanan left with serious head fractures.
