A student who survived being stabbed in the neck with a broken bottle has described how a gang of thugs attacked him and his friends after hearing them speak Polish.
Mr Milewski said they were talking quietly shortly before 1am when they noticed a group of men approaching.
“They started swearing at us and asking why we were talking in Polish, saying it’s not our country and we should go.
At first Mr Milewski said he did not realise how seriously he was wounded, with a gash in his neck that later needed 13 stitches and could leave a scar.
As they started to give chase, Mr Milewski called 999 but struggled to relay his plea for help to emergency operators as he started to lose consciousness.
He was planning to return to Portsmouth University, where he is studying sports development, on Sunday but has been unable to leave home because of his injuries.
