Dean St bash victim speaks out

A LAVINGTON father has been revealed as the victim of a brutal bashing in Albury's Dean Street.

Jason James, speaking publicly for the first time since he was attacked outside a late-night food store, has told The Border Mail of the night that turned his life upside down...

JASON James carefully peels off the white cotton patch taped over his left eye.

The lids are swollen and puffy, his eye bloodshot. 

“I don’t even know if it’s open,” he says.

The 50-year-old was savagely beaten in an unprovoked attack outside of Sweethearts in Dean Street, Albury, in the early hours of November 11.

He is now blind in one eye and he has no hearing in his left ear.

Full interview and the shocking photos of Mr James's injuries that night in tomorrow's Border Mail.

Anyone with information on the attack should phone Albury police on (02) 6023 9299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
