Korean man was assaulted, robbed and kicked onto train tracks by group of Koreans

Redfern Station Source:

The Korean victim told SBS Korean Program how much he shocked by the unexpected assault and robbery conducted by his own countryman.  

A Korean working holiday maker was assaulted and robbed in a train on 18th May (Sat). It became shocking news in the Korean Community in Australia because it was revealed that two men, who bashed the 25 years old in order to force him to speak out his own key card password number and eventually, kicked him onto train tracks actually spoke fluent Korean to him.

The group, two men and a woman took the victims wallet, mobile phone, watch and other belongings away and they withdrew hundreds of dollars from victims bank account few times over that night. The victim was rescued by City rail staffs and was taken to a hospital for treatment of facial injuries.

 

After the incident, the victim called the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Sydney to report what was happening to him and seek some help from the Korean government. However, a staff from Consulate General bluntly talked to him if you have already reported to police, just wait their response and did not even ask his contact or identity. The victim has expressed his disappointment on an insincere attitude of the Consulate General because he believed that the government would help him when he is in need and fear in the foreign country.

 

A police consul from the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea told SBS Korean Program that one of his staffs remembered the call and she said the incident seemed to be treated well by the police so she didnt take any further action and she forgot to ask the callers details. The police consul said what the foreign government can do with an incident treated by local police is actually very limited.

NSW Police now are searching the two men and the woman.
