A Karting driver has been identified as the man who allegedly attacked a victim of alleged sex abuse at a racetrack in Tasmania, Australia, on Wednesday. The 23-year-old sportscar enthusiast allegedly struck an 80-year-old man multiple times in the head before running from the track.

The elderly victim, a member of the family that runs the World Karting Association, was found by onlookers lying motionless on the track. Witness Shayne Stevens said he witnessed the altercation outside the junior grand prix. “The situation was pretty heated as the two young men attempted to kick and then they were at each other’s faces,” he said. One witness said the incident lasted about “30 seconds,” and that both men were talking to police at the scene.

The 75-year-old man alleged victim has since been released from hospital. Police have said they are now investigating the incident, which happened at the Portland Kart Club. As of Thursday morning, the owner of the camp was on the run.
