A mob of up to six men have stormed a home in Melbourne’s inner west overnight, striking a man in the head and fleeing with a Mercedez-Benz.
The group of men entered the Maribyrnong home at Fabian Court about 3.45am on Thursday before attacking a male resident aged in his 50s.
After hitting the man on the head, the men stole a white Mercedez-Benz B class wagon from the property.
The male victim was treated by paramedics for head injuries and taken to the Royal Melbourne hospital in a serious condition.
Police said the offenders were believed to be of African appearance.
A female resident who was also present at the time escaped uninjured.
