A MAN was walking through the southern end of Glebe Park early this morning (August 21) when he was allegedly approached by a group of men and beaten with a baseball bat.
The group of about two or three men went up to the victim at about 1am in Civic, where they beat him and stole his backpack, which had a laptop, a mobile phone and a sum of cash.
The victim was transported to hospital with minor injuries.
