Police claim several people ran over to confront him before a 21-year-old man punched him “a number of times” and knocked him to the ground.
Mr Ward, 41, was then allegedly kicked repeatedly as he lay on the ground and received significant head injuries,
Mr Ward is in Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital receiving treatment for a fractured skull, facial fractures and bruising to his arms and body.
He was in a stable condition last night.
