East Gippsland Crime Investigation Unit detectives are seeking public assistance to help solve a serious assault that occurred in Buchan in 2013.

A 51-year-old man was left in an induced coma after he was assaulted at an industrial premises on Bruthen-Buchan Road sometime between 5am and 6.30am on Tuesday, 22 January.

The Buchan man had just arrived at work when he was violently attacked by an unknown offender.

He suffered multiple fractures to the head and body.

East Gippsland CIU detective Senior Constable Brett Campbell said they believed there were members of the public that held the key to solving the crime.

“The victim has never completely recovered from his injuries, such was the severity of the assault, and he still suffers from ongoing pain and motion issues,” Sen-Constable Campbell said.

“Investigators are desperate to hear from anyone who may have any information regarding this assault.”

Police particularly hope to hear from an anonymous person who came forward in May 2016 stating they knew who committed the crime.

“No matter how big or small the detail, police urge anyone with information to contact police,” Sen-Constable Campbell said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Bairnsdale Police Station on 5150 2600 or make an anonymous report to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at crimestoppersvic.com.au
