A man walking home from Minto Railway Station was set upon and assaulted by a group of men last night.
The man walked through a car park on Erica Lane about 7.20pm when he was approached by another man asking for a cigarette.
As the first man reached for his cigarette a group of men assaulted him and stole his wallet.
The 36-year-old was taken to Campbelltown Hospital suffering swelling and lacerations to his face.
Macquarie Fields police are looking to speak with anyone who may have information that could assist their inquiries.
