Inquiries are continuing after an assault and attempted robbery at a Caringbah service station.
About 2.40am today (Saturday 9 May 2015), a passerby entered the service station on Captain Cook Drive, near the intersection of Woodfield Boulevard.
When he didn’t notice an attendant on duty the passerby investigated noises coming from the toilet block. There, he found the attendant had been tied up.
The 66-year-old man was assessed on site by NSW Ambulance Paramedics before being taken to Sutherland Hospital. His injuries are not considered to be life threatening.
He told police he was putting out the garbage when he was assaulted by two men, described as being of Pacific Islander/Maori appearance.
A damaged ATM is being forensically examined. It appears no cash was taken from the machine.
Inquiries are continuing to determine if any property was stolen.
