Craig Robins was paralysed after a car accident 10 years before his stabbing.

He was knocked out with a brick and then attacked by a gang of up to 30 youths.

He was so badly injured that he was unable to speak afterwards.

Mr Robins left his home in Great Barr, Birmingham, to travel to the Cannock area to look for a gang – known as the WS12 Gang – he thought was responsible for repeatedly vandalising his specially adapted car.

He may have been carrying a machete to scare off anyone he met. 

The victim was stabbed repeatedly in the right side of his face and neck. 

He suffered nine separate wounds to his face and neck, and a blow to the head drove a fragment of his skull into his brain.
