Violence on the streets of Bristol

When walking home alone at 2am on Sunday night, I was looking for a taxi, and walked up Stokes Croft whilst doing a lot of looking behind me. I crossed the road to get away from shady characters and kept my eyes wide.

I was asked if I could call an ambulance for someone - he'd just been attacked and had blood all over his face, neck, body. He was spitting blood and shaking. IT was really disturbing, and as I waited for the ambulance with him, I told him he was lucky that there weren't any weapons.

I feel so sad that this happens, that people get hurt. This man was so shaken and this will impact his life, and I can't stop thinking about it.
