Why would grown men behave this way?

Last weekend I heard that a local resident in a neighbouring street discovered a group of 5 men jumping on cars causing damage. He went outside and told them to get off or he would call the police and they set upon him. As an ex boxer he managed to knock one out and the others ran off but not before one of them slashed his face with a broken bottle causing a deep laceration and he has now had to have stitches. I cannot believe that grown men would behave in this way but luckily one of the men dropped his phone so I think these people will be caught. I hope they get what they deserve. This kind of behaviour is outrageous.

I think they will as they have the phone of one of them. I am waiting to see if a new report goes up on the police facebook profile.

That is really bad. Terrible that they're damaging cars but even worse that they then set upon the guy. I really hope they get the punishment they deserve. Unfortunately, half the time they don't.

To injure someone like that is unforgivable. At least they have the phone of one of them so that should make it easier for the police.

Oh my goodness, I know that now it is dangerous to intervene, your neighbor did the right thing, but at which price. I hope that the phone had not been stolen and those hoolingans will be caught.

There is a picture of him on facebook and he looks really badly hurt. I know him slightly. He was well able to defend himself normally but 5 was just too many.

@sprite1950 I tell my husband all the time to avoid to enter into arguments with people, better to immediately call the police.

@LadyDuck I don't like to get involved in arguments either. Some people are so violent and you never know what they will do while angry.

It wouldn't surprise me if the police come knocking on his door and charge him with assault for knocking one of them out.

Hey you, still here then! Yes I did wonder about that but the 5 of them attacked him when he shouted at them to get off the cars. Wouldn't that be self defence?

@sprite1950 You'd be surprised! If he has no witnesses then it's his word against theirs and if the one who got knocked out decides to be awkward he could file a complaint.

@WorDazza There were other neighbours out in the street who would back him up because their cars wre being jumped on so I think he will get a lot of support.

They ran away and we don't have an update on what has happened since. One of the men dropped his phone though so I think they will get them

We don't really get gangs where I live but I think it was a group of men who had been out drinking and became destructive.

Yes. The man who was attacked was a decent hard working man and also a boxer so he could handle himself but I guess being attacked by 5 people was too much.

That's terrible. They must have been drunk, or high.
