Andris Vitus – who’s originally from Latvia but has been living locally for the past 15 years – had a bottle smashed over his head by a group of young people in Larchfield.

He claims they were after egging his house and he approached them to ask them to clean it up.

However, they then threw fireworks at him along with beer bottles.
