Was there an altercation before hand ?
What approximate ages were the alleged robbers ?
English / Local accents ?
What was he doing out at the time ? club/pub/no valid reason ?

I like to know these things. It helps gage weather it was a genuine attack on an innocent member of the community by a group of scallies or isolated incident on a certain person for a certain reason.
