A horrified mother has described the moment when her son was brutally arrested while suffering an attack.

His epileptic son, Matt Purton, was left bloodied, bruised and scratched after the police allegedly hit him while undergoing an attack.

After the energetic arrest, he had to be flown to St. Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne and placed in an induced coma so that doctors could relieve him of the seizure.

His mother, Vicki Orgle, said she was "horrified" by the attack.

& # 39; I did not say anything. I patted him on the head and said, "Come on Matt, come back with us, you'll be fine in a minute," he said.

"But I did not realize the extent of their damage."

From the age of 21, his condition progressed to the point where he now suffered at least four seizures per week.

Now the father of three children is "too scared" to leave his house because he is so afraid of having an attack in public.

"I hope to be the last person to go around and around like I did when I had an attack." I hope no one else will get over it, "he told A Current Affair.
