I am so shaken after being attacked by a neighbour that I am confined indoors

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been the victim of unprovoked physical attacks by a man who lives two doors away from me.

I’m a man of 30.

This person is around 50 and when I moved into the street, a couple of my neighbours warned me about him.

He’s unemployed and lives alone.

The first time he saw me in the street, he punched me in the back. I was so shaken up.

I’d done nothing.

Yesterday he punched me on the jaw and I was knocked to the ground.

He must have real problems. He just walked away laughing.

The police have been told but I’m scared to go out.

DEIDRE SAYS: These attacks will have made you feel very vulnerable.

He may have some mental health issues but still needs to abide by the law.

Buy a personal attack alarm, which may help you feel safe if you have to go out alone.
