He suffered injuries to his head and back while his left hand was broken. A relative told this newspaper that one of the suspects was sitting on a pick up when Martin approached him and asked what had happened.

The suspect reportedly jumped off the pick-up and chucked Martin who pulled out an ice pick but he did not see the other brother coming with a big piece of wood.

The other suspect “lashed him from behind …” Martin fell to his right side on the road, hitting his head.

The attacker continued hitting Martin and by the time residents realized what was happening and ran to his rescue it was already too late.

The relative said they “did not realize that the injuries were so severe” because he rode his bicycle to his sister’s house in the street.

He told them what had happened and they accompanied him to the Leonora Hospital. As he was leaving, he suffered a seizure and the ambulance had to turn back and he got an injection and they left again.

Reports are that a confrontation between Jason and the brothers started on the playfield around 5 pm at the neighbouring Ruby Village where a football match was going on.
