The 22-year-old victim and his 43-year-old uncle were in the smoking area when they saw two men having an argument.

They tried to intervene but the uncle was allegedly headbutted by one man, who is then said to have punched the nephew in the head.

He suffered a fractured skull and lumps, cuts and bruises to his face and head.

His uncle suffered a cut to his forehead.

They have described the man who attacked them as white, tall and of large build.

At the time of the incident he was wearing a pink t-shirt.

Police told the Advertiser that they have spoken to some witnesses but officers believe there are still some people who saw the incident who have not yet come forward.

The alleged assaults happened at around 2.40am on Saturday July 27.

Anyone who has any information can call police on 101 or speak anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
