Autistic boy chased to exhaustion, slashed across neck: mother appeals for witnesses.
3rd December 2014

16 year old Eamonn Finn, an autistic teenager, was slashed across the face on his way to a local youth centre. After he was chased to the point of exhaustion, the violent, callous attackers stabbed him in the neck. 

The impact has left Eamonn shaken. He still dreams about the event and is now frightened of the dark. The 5-6 inch scar which runs just under his jawline is still visible. 

His mother is hoping to find the culprits to help her son get closure. She is encouraging anyone with information to help. 

If you know anything about the savage ambush, please get in touch with Westminster CID on 07500 766 464.
