POLICE have appealed for information after a pensioner was left with serious injuries after an unprovoked assault in Goldthorpe.

At around 11pm on June 19, a 73-year-old man left the Horse and Groom pub and was hit from behind as he walked along Market Street.

The victim fell to the floor and suffered a serious neck injury as a result of the assault. No property was stolen.

The offender is described as a white man, in his 20s, with a slim face. He was wearing a three-quarter length, khaki-coloured army-style coat.

Anyone with information about the assault is asked to contact DC Peter Naivalurua on 101 quoting incident number 108 of June 20.

This story has made me feel ill. Just what sort of man does this to anyone never mind a pensioner. My god, if theres any justice at all this person should have the book thrown at him. What a pity public flogging isnt an option. The first 20 lashes being given by the victims sons/daughters. Disgusting to the core.

@sid in full agreement with you. They should have the same done to them and maybe think about how they'd feel if it was there parent grandparent

What is it about Barnsley & Beating/Robbing/Burgling/Assaulting OAPs? I realise Goldthorpe is the A***hole of the earth, but this' getting ridiculous.

Can't be many people walking round with that type if coat on he's probably that stupid he's still walking round in it. Hope the coward gets found and dealt with and that the gentleman is ok.

Politicians Need to grow a spinal cord. The behaviour of these animals should not be allowed to happen in society. Bring back public flogging every Saturday in the Town squares. I'd do the job free

Hope you make a full recovery and they get the justice they deserve

Reading this lot reminds me of the old Frankenstein films with the villagers chasing the monster with there flaming torches and pitchforks ,if you really believe that flogging is the answer go get the fork out of the garden shed and start chasing,

Youre right @ guy.
The attacker is a monster. Also,chasing monsters like that would prove to be tremendous fun, it would only need to be done a couple of times in each village as these monsters are cowards and its better than the punishment that's given out today. Some highly paid lawyer coming up with every excuse under the sun to get them an even more lenient punishment than the 6 months community service they get now. If it was your parent that had been hurt and terrified for the rest of their bit of life that's left,I reckon you too would be polishing your garden fork and running shoes. Society needs help with sorting out these monsters and its not forthcoming any time in the near future. You look after yourself,don't go for a drink and make sure you're home by 9, or the monster may well get you!

You're fooling yourself sid I think I made this point before when hanging was the capital punishment of this country I think you will find pier point hung a lot more than one or two didn't he and as regards the story of Frankenstein who really was the monster.

Mmm you make a good point @guy. But punishment isn't doing it these days. We need something that,ll hurt these monsters like they hurt their victims.

Goldthorpe isn't the worst place in the world. You get people like this from all over, things like this doesn't just happen in Goldthorpe and its not the worst place for crime either.
