An Echuca police officer said a man who was knocked unconscious by a blow to the head during a fight at a hotel at the weekend was lucky to avoid serious injury.
Leading Senior Constable Jasmine Gregor said police were called to the American Hotel about midnight Sunday after an alcohol-related incident involving two men.
Sen. Constable Gregor said a Kyabram man in his early 20s was hit in the head, giving him a concussion, and was taken to Echuca hospital for observation.
‘‘With all the publicity surrounding one-punch attacks, this could have been a lot worse,’’ she said.
Sen. Constable Gregor said a Melbourne man, aged in his late 20s, attended Echuca police station the next day and was helping police with their inquiries.
‘‘Charges are pending,’’ she said.
