He is in a stable condition in hospital with head injuries.

Police were called to a residential unit in The Boulevard on July 16, 2002, after 36-year-old Patricia Sagban was found dead in a partially filled bathtub. Forensics experts found her head and neck had been injured. A phone in the unit had been disabled. Strike Force Zuba was established to investigate the death. Following exhaustive inquiries, detec- tives are again appealing for public help. Police are keen to hear again from a mystery person who has contacted them in the past about the woman's death. Det-Sgt Simon Gillard said an anonymous caller contacted Crime Stoppers twice in 2004 and again in May 2005 with specific information about the death of Ms Sagban. ''While the tragic death of this young woman remains unsolved, her family are unable to close this sad chapter in their lives,'' Det-Sgt Gillard said. ''This person may hold more details regarding this matter, which might assist investigators.'' Police are appealing to the caller to make direct contact with Strike Force Zuba detectives on 9977 9456. A coronial inquest is due to start on Monday, August 11. 3 THREE men assaulted a 26-year-old man in Morewick St, Strathfield, at 3.50am on Sunday.
