Portuguese father-of-five needed hospital treatment following assault. A Portuguese father-of-five needed hospital treatment following a sickening race-hate attack at a children’s park. Two thugs repeatedly kicked Serafim dos Santos in the head and shouted “Go back to your own country” during the assault at Redhill Park, Chadsmoor, Staffordshire. Wife Marta says she found her husband slumped on the grass, with the attackers nearby and swigging lager. She bravely asked them why they had beaten up her husband. “They told me we are not British and should go back to where we came from,” said the launderette worker. Following the incident, which took place at 3pm on Tuesday, July 5, she accompanied 43-year-old Serafim to Wolverhampton’s New Cross Hospital. He was treated for bruising and internal bleeding. (…) “They were drinking beer on the grass,” said Marta. “My husband said, ‘No, I’m not spying on children. I have five children of my own. I’m just tired and want to rest’. “But when he began to speak they noticed he wasn’t British and yelled, ‘Go back to your country’. They kicked him and punched him.” The couple arrived in this country close to four years ago and have never encountered racism before.
