This is the moment a man brandishing a golf club allegedly chased schoolchildren along a London street in a frenzied attack that left a 13-year-old boy with a fractured skull.
Gosh! Why would someone do this? Are there any lurking clues?
A resident who lives close to Dunraven School described seeing blood on the ground and a schoolboy lying unconscious following the assault. They said: ‘There’s always a bit of commotion when the kids come out so when I heard shouting and screaming I didn’t pay any attention.’
Today, the schoolboy victim was described as popular and ‘cheeky’ by parents with children in the same year as him. One said: ‘He’s a well-known kid who has a lot of friends.
‘Like any 13-year-old he can be a bit mouthy but he’s not a troublemaker and is very likeable.’
Another added: ‘It’s very shocking because he’s a lovely boy. He’s a character, bit of a cheekie chappie who’s always smiling and joking around.’
The mother claimed that the attacker was well known in the area.
She said: ‘The man is known to the school children.
‘He lives two doors away from the school. Some of the children make fun of him and call him names. It’s not right what he did but he is not all there.’
We've already got one trial ongoing of a 'care in the community' case that resulted in disaster, but at least there, the injured party was totally innocent and did nothing to bring about the attack. I'm not getting the same vibe here, are you, Reader?
