Curtin University woman attacked

An international student at Curtin university (WA, Australia) who has cerebral palsy was robbed and beaten by a group of three men as she was making her way home from the University to student accommodation this week. The 35-year-old woman was hit in her head and her face until she was unconscious, and sustained chipped teeth and serious bruising as a result of the attack. She is recovering in a Perth hospital. Police have now arrested two men in connection with the attack and are looking for a third man. They are also investigating whether a gang of men are responsible for a number of attacks around Curtin University, including this one.
