The Ascot man jumped to his feet and tried to run away, but was allegedly followed by the other man and hit on the back of the head.
He lost consciousness and was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after being treated by paramedics.
Police say they interviewed a 53-year-old man from Bendigo, who has since been released pending further investigation.
“The investigation into the incident is ongoing and police are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen the initial incident, leading to the men being at the scene,” Victoria Police said.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
