He will be off operate for a 7 days.
“We’re estimating everywhere amongst 20 and 60 blows … I managed to block most of them,” Mr Johnson mentioned.
“I was so lucky I didn’t get a severe blow to the temple or lose an eye or fracture a jaw. I could have been so significantly even worse for me.”
Sooner or later police were known as and the man was apprehended.
Mr Johnson mentioned he was talking out because he did not want to see this occur to any individual else.
“I have been lucky … I’ve gotten away with reasonably slight harm. Next time it could be a entirely distinct scenario,” he mentioned.
