Man attacked with his Metal Detector
Twin brothers 'witnessed gang throwing stones at man' in Frizinghall
Eight-year-old twin brothers witnessed a vulnerable man being attacked with bricks and his own metal detector, a Court heard.
A jury at Bradford Crown Court was shown video interviews the boys gave to police the day after the incident, at Frizinghall in April last year.
The brothers, now ten, were playing football with a friend on a fenced-in five-a-side pitch when they saw Matthew Ellis, 39, being attacked on a path by a group of teenagers.
Mr Ellis needed emergency surgery after he was hit on the forehead by a rock, thrown by one of the gang, causing a wound which penetrated the membrane surrounding his brain. He also suffered a broken arm after being struck three times with his metal detector.
