Boy repeatedly punched in face as attackers insist ‘get naked’
A BOY has been punched in the face repeatedly as his attackers insist he “gets naked” in south London.
Kevin Mcmahon says his son Aiden, 13, was robbed of his shoes and coat in Wanborough Drive in Roehampton on Sunday as his attackers counted the punches they gave to his face.
According to dad Kevin, he had “put his phone down his pants” so they couldn’t find it.
One male is said to have punched Aiden in the side of his head and face while swearing at him before telling another male to “give him a couple more”.

Aiden’s dad Kevin told Newsquest south London he can “barely make a cup of tea” after what happened to his son.
He said: “It’s just horrific and we are devastated.
“I just pace up and down the house, I’m not sleeping or eating and I can barely make a cup of tea.
“We are beside ourselves and Aiden’s three younger siblings just keep stroking his face because they don’t know what’s happened.
“Aiden is baring up but I know he’s scared.”
Kevin, Aiden and family recently moved from Battersea to Roehampton – and Aiden started hanging round a new community hub when they moved with a “cute group of friends to play football with”, according to Kevin.
