A driver who had his jaw broken by a gang of violent thugs in an unprovoked attack has spoken about his ordeal.
The 24-year-old also suffered two broken teeth, two black eyes and a swollen cheek following the unprovoked attack in Clifton.
The man, who lives in Henlow was driving home from a night out between 1.30am and 2am on Saturday, August 31 when he passed a silver Ford Focus parked close to Samuel Whitbread Academy in Shefford Road, Clifton.
The vehicle drove up behind him and started tailgating him until he reached the junction of Whiston Crescent and Stockbridge Road in Clifton.
The car then overtook the man’s silver Volkswagen Polo and braked sharply, forcing him to stop.
Five men got out and two started punching and kicking his car while a third opened the driver’s door and pinned him down. Another two then punched him repeatedly in the face.
The five attackers then returned to their vehicle and sped off.
The man, who works at Bedford Hospital drove home and called the police.
He said: “It was a horrible attack and completely unprovoked.
“At first I thought it was a police car behind me but then they started tailgating me and I knew something was wrong. But nothing could have prepared me for what was going to happen next.
“I’m just glad that it was someone like me and not somebody who was elderly or vulnerable.”
Three of the men are described as white and in their early 20s, while the other two were in their thirties and were of Asian appearance.
