MUGGED BY ROO.

A MAN has been injured in an attack by a kangaroo.

The 64-year-old was walking near his home when it left its mob and went for him.

The victim wrestled with the creature and eventually broke free. He suffered cuts to his face,stomach and leg.

The incident happened in Sunbury, north of Melbourne, Australia.

Paramedic Dennis Prendergast said: "One of the kangaroos came from behind and attacked him.

"It was almost as tall as he was and he wrestled it until he could break free."

It's the third similar incident in Sunbury in the past year. A male jogger and woman were also attacked by kangaroos.
