Stratford Editorial 1st Aug, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A MAN walking on an Alcester estate was pelted with eggs and hit with his own snooker cue with such force it broke in half.

The man was walking on St Faiths Road on Wednesday July 27 at around 11.40pm when he was hit by eggs thrown from a small silver car.

The car was driving at speed around the estate along with other vehicles. It then stopped and five youths are believed to have got out.

They hit the man with a bar and continued to attack him while he was on the floor. They then used his victim’s own snooker cue, which he was carrying, to attack him – hitting him with such force it broke in half.

The youths then made off towards Castle Road.

The injured man had to go to hospital for treatment.
