On the same night I was assaulted randomly, another man in London (Sutton to be precise), who was also celebrating Halloween, wasn’t so lucky. Ben Gardner, 30, was beaten to death by some random thugs after he confronted a thief who stole his girlfriend’s Halloween hat. Like what happened to me, this was unprovoked. And stupid.
If you have no reason to attack, then why waste your time hurting someone when you could just walk away? I don’t get it.
