husband beaten up monday eve

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
my husband who was disabled was beaten up monday,we was getting off the tram and someone took a dislike to us we ignored it was chatting in general the scum who hit hubby waited across the road for us,we have great witnesses and it was unprevoked attack,eneded up in A and E and hubby had his head glued now we both scared to leave the house i go out when really need my hubby has cp epilepsy and is blind person was arrested same night and been bailed yesterday.
Oh no!
I am so sorry that this has happened to you both.
It sounds awful! I hope that someone is taking care of you both now.

Take care xx
How terrifying! I would surmise that the guy was either 'mental' or 'high' - or both. There are those who just want to 'pick a fight' and he sounds like one of them. But a coward too, for picking on your husband.

I'm glad it was not 'worse' - as these maniacs loose on the streets really don't care if they knife or kill

Go VERY easy on yourselves tonight - take care , thinking of you - Jenny.
I'm sorry to hear of this and glad your hubby is doing ok

It makes me angry though, what an absolute animal I am disgusted by that level of behavior its one thing attacking a member of the public but with respect your hubby's condition would surely had been notable enough for them to know it was a vulnerable person they were attacking too.

The individual had to have been either under the influence or suffering a mental health crisis, a rational person does not go and strike a blind man with cp (they wouldn't had known of the epilepsy) and if they are going to do that to your hubby they should not be out on the streets period because they are a clear threat to the public.

The whole hitting in the head at random was a fad a couple years back but police didn't start actually pulling their finger out until people started being killed as a result (any strike is bad let alone one you don't see/from behind etc)

Guy should be up on an attempted murder charge / grievous bodily harm / assault with intent, not free to to roam the town less than a couple days later to do it to somebody else!

Hits a bit close to home as I fell victim to an unprovoked group assault (from behind) some years back (in town, during day), wish I could say they were able to just use some glue but I ended up returning home looking like frankenstein with half my teeth missing as the CCTV later showed a Cosh was used to strike me in the back of my head more than once (cracking it open) and when I was on the ground another booted me in the face, middle of the day no less. I'm about to have the remaining teeth extracted and having to get dentures as a result when I can arrange care (cant put it off any longer)

Best wishes
Dear God! Welcome to the UK - where there is no mental health care, no drug rehab, and no prison space left.

And no sanity, either.
Tracie this must have been so frightening for you and your hubby. Truly terrible. I hope the person gets a fitting sentence.

Honey Badger, what a vicious attack. Truly shocking. Nightmare.

I know this is slightly sideways, but I now tell my son he must ALWAYs ensure two things when he is 'out and about' - that he is NEVER on his phone when walking along the street, and that he ALWAYS has a bottle of water on him so he can dilute an acid attack immediately (and preferably be wearing dark glasses when he's outdoors as well, to protect his eyes.)

It just seems INSANE that this stuff happens in England - unbelievable.

(And WHERE do they GET the acid from? I mean, how come it isn't banned in the first place? I know that won't stop the supply totally, because of the black market -but concentrated sulphuric/nitric/hydrochloric acid is not that easy to produce - it takes distillation etc to concentrate it, let alone generate it in the first place, so that would at least reduce the supply surely)

Another thing folk should carry with them, maybe, is a tub of bicarb (as in cooking soda). As an anti-acid it would help 'defuse' the acid, though it may have minimal such effect if the acid is concentrated. Might help a bit though.
Thanks everyone your not safe anywhere these days,he very sore and we wont leave the house,scum bag was arrested same eve and let out on thursday pending investigation.
I'm really sorry this has happen to your husband, my wife has uncontrolled complex partial epilepsy like your husband, I can't for the life of me understand why people would want to do this to him.
I hope he recovers very soon
Police finally came on thursday took staements from both of us,policeman who been dealing with it has been great sadly we was not told the person who asulted my husband was released so policeman and us are not happy,its two week tomorrow since it happend he has healed up well but will not stay home alone or go out i go out when need but not been out either since we both saw gp last week.
