Police are appealing for witnesses to an attempted robbery in which the victim was repeatedly struck with a metal bar.
Police say he was hit with an object, believed to be a metal bar, that knocked him to the ground.
The assailant demanded the bag and continued to strike the man but he hung on to his property.
The would-be robber then ran off empty-handed up a nearby footpath towards Barkerend.
Members of the public helped the victim to his feet and called for an ambulance.
He was treated in hospital for a head injury and then discharged.
The suspect is described as Asian, or of mixed race. He is over six feet tall, of medium build and speaks with a local accent.
He was wearing a white or cream hooded top pulled up tightly around his face and trousers that might have been tracksuit bottoms or jeans.
