Two Telstra workers were robbed by a gang of youths with baseball bats during a late shift in Woodcroft. A 52-year-old Mulgoa man and 35-year-old man from Kellyville were working on a power box on Woodcroft Rd about midnight last Wednesday when they noticed five men watching them from a distance. The workers claimed the youths, carrying two baseball bats, described as 18 to 20 years old and mostly of Islander appearance, approached them and demanded they empty their pockets. The Mulgoa man refused and was hit around the head with a baseball bat. When the youths asked again, the two men handed over their mobile phones and a laptop computer. The 52-year-old was taken to Blacktown Hospital with swelling, bruising and lacerations to the left side of his head. Blacktown crime manager Det-Insp Gary Hutchen said it was the first such incident and inquiries into the attack were continuing.
