Thugs Chanting “Lee Rigby” Beat English Soldier Bloody
Murdered on the street in southeast London
Lee Rigby of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers lies dead on the street near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich after two Muslims stabbed him to death in May.
A SOLDIER was attacked in an Exeter underpass by a gang who chanted “Lee Rigby” as they kicked him on the floor.
The 18-year-old, known as Alexander, has been a member of the Coldstream Guards for six months.
But on route to his home in St Thomas, Exeter, he said he was targeted by the hateful mob as he is a serving member of the armed forces.
After a period of about two minutes he managed to escape after fighting off but fear his injuries could have been a lot worse.
The incident happened at just before 2pm on Wednesday afternoon.
He said: “I was walking home from the train station at Exeter Central and got to the ruins at Exe bridges. As I went into the underpass a group of lads walked past me.
“They stopped and asked if I was in the forces. I replied yes and before I could say why, fists were coming towards my face.
“I was knocked to the floor and then carried on kicking me for what felt like a couple of minutes.
“I crawled up in a ball but couldn’t get up. One was trying to get a screwdriver out of his pocket. I managed to get it off him and fight him off.
“They were all covered up so I couldn’t see any of their faces. They kept shouting Lee Rigby – like they wanted to re-create what happened.”
