Traralgon police have charged a 27-year-old man following an unprovoked attack in a Traralgon carpark on 15 June.

It is alleged a man was sitting at a bench just outside the shopping centre entry on Franklin Street when he was struck to the head without warning about 12.20pm.

The physical assault continued out onto the road of the carpark as the victim tried to defend himself.

An alleged acquaintance of the main offender also punched the 55-year-old man which caused him to fall to the ground before the main offender then tried to stomp on the victim’s head.
