– A 62-year-old motorcyclist was ambushed and drenched in acid after he was mistaken for a member of a bikie gang.
The Pakenham man was rushed to Dandenong Hospital after the attack on the South Gippsland Highway near Bena yesterday. He is in a serious condition.
Police said the victim was ambushed by a group of men who screamed “we don’t like bikies around here” as they attacked the man.
Police said they did not believe the victim was a member of an outlaw motorcycle gang.
Detectives have not spoken to the man but believe he did not know his attackers.
