Police appeal for information following a series of assaults in the BBay area

Police are investigating a series of assaults on the NSW South Coast, one of which left a woman with suspected serious leg and pelvic fractures.

About 4.45pm yesterday a man was involved in a domestic argument at a Catalina home with a woman who was known to him. The woman was assaulted and her handbag stolen during the fight.

A short time later, a unit at Surf Beach Avenue Surf Beach was broken into and the male occupant was assaulted. A 60-year-old woman who lived in a nearby unit tried to intervene as a man was driving off in a vehicle.

She was hit by the car and left with suspected leg and pelvic fractures. A bystander came to the woman’s aid.

The man drove away from the area. He was last seen in Tasman Street at Surf Beach after the allegedly stolen car he was travelling in hit a gutter.

Police from South Coast Police District are treating the incidents as linked and want to speak with a man who might be able to help with inquiries.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 165-170cm tall, with an olive complexion, black hair and brown eyes. The man has been known to frequent Mogo, Surf Beach and Batemans Bay.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages
