Assault victim is reunited with wife
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.
