A young father is fighting for his life after he was struck in the head with a brick as he rode down a suburban Perth street on a dirt bike.
Brandon Jackson, 18, was knocked from his bike on Sunday as he rode along Cloverdale’s Kew Street in the city’s east, Nine News reported.
Mr Jackson, who wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time, suffered critical head injuries and is in a coma at Royal Perth Hospital.
Western Australia Police are searching for those responsible and are calling for anyone with information regarding the attack to come forward.
There have been no arrests made in relation to the incident as of Monday morning, WA Police confirmed to Yahoo News Australia.
Neighbours have said there were three bricks thrown in the incident.
Friend Chris Marshall told Nine News Mr Jackson was a “good kid” and the attack was “disappointing”.
One local said the area was regularly frequented by people riding dirt bikes, which had become “irritating” for those who lived there.
Police believe the incident is isolated.
Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
