Man ‘beaten with metal bats’ and ‘told to go back to your country’ over payment row

A man claims he was “beaten with metal bats” and “told to go back to my country” in an alleged asssault.

Farshad Jamshidi, 30, said he was attacked by an “aggressive” man during an argument over a fencing job.

The alleged incident took place on Sunday, October 4, in the Worcestershire village of Cleeve Prior.

Mr Jamshidi told BirminghamLive : “He started swearing and shouting at me.

“When we tried to leave, there was a group of about five men in a car which had parked outside.

“They attacked me and beat me with metal bats and told me to go back to my country.

“One of them grabbed me and started punching me in the head and the eye. I couldn’t see anything.

“We just wanted to leave.”

Two others, who had worked with Mr Jamshidi on the job, were also attacked by the group, he said.

After the attack, police officers were called and Mr Jamshidi was rushed to Alexandra Hospital in Redditch after officers requested an ambulance.

He claimed he was living with both physical and mental scars since the assault.

“I’m still in shock and feel unsafe,” he said. “I still feel dizzy too and I can’t stand properly.

“I’m scared there’s been damage to my brain – it’s like I feel drunk all the time.”

West Mercia Police said it was investigating the attack.

“Officers were called to reports three men had been assaulted on October 4 in Cleeve Prior, Evesham,” a police spokesperson said.

“The investigation is ongoing and at this time no-one has been charged.”
