Hi there. I just wanted to talk to someone.I was seriously assulted on Thursday. The son of a neighbour attacked me when i was outside my back door. He dragged me to the ground pinned me down and strangled me. I couldn't breathe and he banged my head on the concrete.
He continued to drag me down our drive me and strangled me again. After several minutes he got off me and I stood up. He attacked me again and threw me against our car, which is now dented and dragged me to the floor and strangled me again.
As soon as it started my wife phoned the police and was talking to them and watching as he attacked me. She was terrified.
During the attack when i could shout I told him we were phoning the police. He said oh you tried to punch me, I'm restraining you. Totally made up, to try and get out of being prosecuted.
It started because he repeatedly rakes up and throws leaves from his mother's lawn on to our garden. And I had the audacity to throw them back.
I honestly thought he might kill me. The police said my wife wasn't an independent witness so it's my word against his. It's hard to believe what's happened or that he might not be prosecuted. He was totally out of control. So we're really worried what he might do next.
It's two days after and I'm at the MIU after phoning 111 with chest pain. I think it's bruised or cracked ribs. My neck and back hurt too. I've had back pain for a while due to the RA or fibromyalgia. It's a lot worse at the moment.
Sorry to unload like this. Its so knocked my confidence and self esteem.
