As­sault vic­tim is re­united with wife

Bray People - - Bray People -

A POL­ISH MAN who was vi­ciously bat­tered with a crow­bar on Green­park Road on his way home from a night out with work friends has fi­nally been re­united with his wife.

Krzys­tosf Zi­etkiewicz, 48, is still re­cov­er­ing from the in­juries he in­curred dur­ing the ter­ri­fy­ing at­tack al­most two months ago, but now has wife Mariya by his side.

Red tape held up her jour­ney to Ire­land for sev­eral weeks but has now made the trip and is stay­ing with Krys’ brother Jarek.

Though res­i­dent in Poland, Mariya is a ci­ti­zen of Ukraine and so has only lim­ited rights to travel here.

Mean­while, Krys’s con­di­tion is im­prov­ing as he con­va­lesces in a south Dublin hospi­tal.

Gar­dai in­ves­ti­gat­ing the at­tack have still not tracked down Krys’ as­sailant.

He was set upon while walk­ing home in the early hours of the morn­ing late in July.

He was beaten up to 40 times af­ter the as­sailant dis­cov­ered his vic­tim was not car­ry­ing any cash.

He broke his wrist, arm and leg dur­ing the on­slaught.

Doc­tors dis­cov­ered that his leg had been twisted 180 de­grees, and his hip was bro­ken in four places.

Krys’ brother Jarel has been forced to take time off work be­cause of the in­ci­dent and has also had to give up ac­com­mo­da­tion the two men were shar­ing in Bray.

Krys, an em­ployee of Green­star, has been in Ire­land for 10 months.
