A desperate mother has appealed for help after her autistic son was the victim of a brutal attack by three men.

Margaret Finn wrote on Facebook that her 16-year-old son Eamonn was walking down Regency Street in Pimlico on the evening of 4 June when he was slashed across the neck by three assailants.

She described how her terrified son tried to run from the men when they began verbally abusing him at about 7.20pm as he walked to a youth group for people with disabilities.

But the men chased him and stabbed him in the neck millimeters from his jugular artery.

‘They did far more than stab him, they’ve also taken away the only bit of independence he had, which took us almost two years to prepare him for,’ she wrote.

‘I’m now too frightened to let him back out, and I’m getting the fallout from that too.’

Margaret revealed it had taken ‘almost two years’ to build the independence and confidence required for him to go out alone.

Fortunately, Eamonn ran into a police officer as he tried to get home, who had him taken to hospital

The suspects are described as Hispanic or black and in their late teens or early twenties. Eamonn’s attacker has curly wet-look hair and was wearing a grey jumper.

Anyone with information is asked to call Westminster CID on 07500 766464 or via 101. To remain anonymous please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
