A man has been rushed to hospital with serious injuries after being bashed and left for dead in Byford last night.
Police were called to the scene on Kardan Boulevard about 6.25pm, with an initial report indicating a man had been hit by a car.
But once officers arrived it was established there had not been a crash.
Police said they believe a group of men had instead attacked the victim, leaving him with serious injuries before fleeing the scene.
A member of the public found the man lying on the side of the road and called triple zero.
The victim was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital, where he is conscious.
Police said they believe the incident was not random, and that the people involved were all known to each other.
Anyone with information relating to this incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online.
