A 20 year-old Melbourne man is being treated for a severe laceration at a Victorian hospital after allegedly punching and smashing the glass door of the Deniliquin Salvation Army Store early Sunday morning.
The door had been securely boarded up by the time Salvation Army Captain David Day inspected the damage about 7am.
A trail of blood stains had dried on the concrete footpath from the Edwardes St store’s door to the Civic Place corner.
The man is believed to have severed a main artery in his arm after it went through the glass.
Capt Day was still sweeping up broken glass from outside the store before it opened at 10am yesterday.
Volunteers also tried in vain to remove the blood stains from the footpath.
Capt Day said he was unaware of what actually happened at the store, saying it ‘‘is a police matter’’.
He did, however, give thanks to the authorities that responded to the incident.
‘‘I want to say thank you to Deniliquin Security (who assisted to board up the door) – I appreciate their good citizenship,’’ he said.
‘‘The police also did a great job. I believe they saved the man’s life.’’
Police said the man had not long left a local hotel when he allegedly punched the glass door about 1.15am on Sunday.
The laceration was to his right arm.
A witness waved down police, who gave the man first aid treatment before paramedics arrived.
The man was taken to Deniliquin Hospital before being transferred to the Victorian hospital.
