Fawkner hotel car park assault leaves woman fighting for life

A woman has been gravely injured during a weekend assault in a hotel car park in Melbourne's north.

It is understood the 63-year-old Fawkner woman was hurt during a fight with another person, which occurred in the rear car park of The Meadow Inn Hotel on Sydney Road, Fawkner, about 9pm on Saturday.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman Paul Bentley said paramedics found the woman in cardiac arrest before taking her to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

She remains in a critical condition.

Police have already spoken to some witnesses but they want to speak with other people believed to have been in the area during the incident.

Two men were captured by CCTV cameras and police are hoping for public help to identify them. Police said the men are not suspects but are being sought as potential witnesses.


Police want the two men and any other witnesses to come forward.

On Sunday, police arrested a 29-year-old Fawkner woman, who is currently helping police with their inquiries.

Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
