About 1am, a 41-year-old man was walking towards Gosford station to catch a train to his home. After meeting three men as he walked to the station, the 41-year-old man gave one of the other men a cigarette. The man was then abused, pushed over and spat upon.

After he got to his feet and attempted to leave the station, he was followed by the group towards a lift. The man was then allegedly assaulted again, which resulted in a bruised right eye and a leg broken in three places.

The offenders then left the area on a train and the injured man was assisted by rail staff before emergency services were contacted. After being treated at the scene, the man was conveyed to Gosford Hospital by Ambulance Paramedics in a stable condition.
