  1. Good to hear that the gent is recovering and I hope he suffers no lasting damage after his injury.

    It’s shocking that someone would do that especially as it says it was an unprovoked attack. Unprovoked or provoked though makes no difference…this gent could have easily died from being attacked and the scum who did it needs to be caught and brought to justice !!

    I have to ask though…..Why as it taken almost a month for the police to ask for witnesses to this attack ? People’s memoried fade and perhaps if it had been reported sooner and they had asked then they may have a better chance of catching the person who did it.
