Autistic boy, 19, attacked with knuckle duster in second savage beating in a month

Jacob Comertoglu, 19, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, was first set upon in December last year when he was waking to see the Christmas lights show in Bodmin, Cornwall.

He stumbled across a couple arguing and was attacked by a man who headbutted him and was rushed to hospital.

Shocking footage shows the brutal assault which happened just weeks before the latest incident last Friday night.

Jacob’s terrified mum Sally Kinsman told Cornwall Live the most recent attack took place in a flat in Bodmin.

She said: “It happened in a flat in the main street. He walked past and heard ‘Jake, Jake, come up’.

“Innocently he went up and was lured into the bathroom where he was beaten by three people with a knuckleduster.

“He has a chunk missing above his eye and has threatened to commit suicide.

“I’ve had to take time off work to watch him. I’m keeping an eye on him 24/7. He’s been given anti-depressants but told it’s going to get worse before it gets better.”

His mum believes those responsible for the attack last Friday are friends with the person responsible for the attack in December.

Devon and Cornwall Police said they are still investigating both incidents and no arrests have been made.
