Police are hunting for a violent intruded who assaulted a young aged care worker during a bungled retirement village burglary in Melbourne's south east.


Jonathan Truder is wanted for bashing a young aged care worker inside a retirement village in Melbourne, South East. The woman was assaulted when she confronted the man who police say 

was trying to burgle the facility. Doogalbeaty has the story. Wandering through a retirement village, a man who police alleged was on the hunt for valuables before assaulting a female staff member in a shocking attack. 

Very confronting, especially for a female employee and was completely unprovoked. The man was spotted inside Richfield Village in Aspandale Gardens around 7 .30 on Thursday morning. The 27 -year -old worker approaching him on her own in a second -story bin room 

to ask what he was doing before he grabbed her and punched her several times in the head and upper body. Significant bruise into the face and scratches to the body and arm and she's heavily traumatised. 

The thug then fled onto Wells Road. A vulnerable female isolated in a room with obviously an aggressive violent offender and the potential for this to escalate is quite high. But the health workers union says it's 

far from an isolated incident with violent attacks against staff on the rise. This woman should never have confronted this gentleman, should never have come up to this man to see what he was doing and it could have been a lot worse, a lot worse. 

The victim is yet to return to work since the assault last Thursday morning. The attack also prompting calls for increased security measures at retirement villages. No health worker is trained prior to their employment how to recognise or deal with 

violence in the workplace. The wanted man is described as being aged in his late 20s Asian in appearance and spoke with an accent. Anyone who recognises him should call police. Dougal Beatty, 9 News.
