UK: Eight-year-old boy 'viciously beaten' in Stamford Hill street

Via The Jewish Chronicle:
An eight-year-old Jewish boy had been left traumatised  after being “viciously beaten” in an unprovoked attack in north London.  
According to the Shomrim volunteer security group, the child was walking home from his school in Stamford Hill  on Monday when he was attacked in what the group called “a shocking incident” which left him with “swelling and marks near his chest, neck, shoulder and face.” 
In a series of tweets, Shomrim described how the boy escaped after two people came to his aid and chased away the attacker. The boy “ran home and up all the stairs before collapsing. He was crying and couldn't talk for the next [four and a half] hours.” 
When the boy was finally able to talk, he described how “a white man wearing gloves attacked him from behind, pushed him to the wall and beat him severely”. 
The boy was treated by the Hatzolah Jewish ambulance service, but was later taken to hospital.
