I was sick to read about this serious assault in Parkgate. I'm sure that the offenders will be known and someone within the community will know something or have suspicions. If they have they can always ring CRIMESTOPPERS and pass any information.
I wish the genleman a speedy recovery and our thoughts are with him and his family.
