Attack on autistic son 'took away his independence'

A mother of an autistic teenager, slashed across the neck by three assailants, has said that she wants them to "face the consequences".

Eamonn Finn, 16, is said to have been walking around Pimlico, in central London on June 4 at around 7.30pm. Margaret Finn appealed for help on social media:

They did far more than stab him, they've also taken away the only bit of independence he had, which took us almost two years to prepare him for. I'm now too frightened to let him back out, and I'm getting the fallout from that too.

– Margaret Finn
