Police have arrested twin brothers who allegedly bashed a man with a baseball bat in front of his daughter in Sydney’s south-west.
At about 7.30 last night, the 42-year-old man and his 20-year-old daughter went to a home on Truman Avenue at Riverwood to return a mobile phone.
The situation escalated with two 19-year-old brothers chasing the pair from the home.
The twins caught them nearby and allegedly attacked the man with the baseball bat.
Police say three other men joined the attack, punching and kicking him while he was on the ground and fleeing before police arrived.
