“A MOTHER has told how her son was forced to undergo extensive facial surgery following a brutal attack in a park near their home.
The 44-year-old mother, from Bramcote, says her 16-year-old son has only just been able to start speaking again after the attack in Bramcote Park earlier this month. He was with three friends cutting through the park to get home when they were confronted by a group of teenagers.
“This other group ordered my son and his friends to get their mobiles out and empty their pockets. Then one lad, who my son says was around six foot, hit my son in the mouth with some kind of metal object.
The hospital staff later told me that if the punch had been higher than his mouth, the extent of the damage meant he may not be here. He’s only just started speaking again and has still got to undergo extensive dental surgery.”
..She added: “My son told me they kept saying ‘What’s your colours?’ It sounds like a bit of a gang thing. It’s the kind of language that frightens young lads.”
