Police gave a description of one offender as six foot eight inches tall and of muscular build, wearing a khaki green t-shirt and blue shorts. No arrests have yet been made and the police investigation is ongoing.

The victim’s sister Suzanne Marie Chamberlain told The Lincolnite: “It sickens me that people out there are going around using weapons and attacking people in broad daylight for something that has no real value to anyone but the owner as his chain did!

“I’m just so relieved that my brother’s injuries were not life threatening and he will make a full physical recovery.”

Anyone witnesses or people with information should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 386 of July 26.
