A despicable, cowardly act and here is the aftermath after four yobs have attacked a pensioner in his home in Portsmouth.
Police have launched an investigation into the incident that took place in Bridgeside Close after the four yobs went to the property and carried out the foul attack on the defenceless man.
The 68-year-old man opened his door to four boys and got punched in the face.
After details of the attack have been revealed many have named and shamed those involved.
This is socially unacceptable and we don’t want our roads and streets turning into no-go areas said one resident doors away from the attack. We need to stand up to these people take back control of the streets.
Hampshire Constabulary has been approached for comment.
