A dad was left with deep cuts to his head after allegedly being beaten by seven thugs when he asked a driver to move his car.

Mahamadou Sillah, 26, is said to have been attacked with baseball bats and golf clubs near his family’s home.

After asking the driver of the car to move his vehicle, which was blocking a narrow stretch of road, Mr Sillah was warned he would “get what’s coming to him,” his wife said.

The other men quickly arrived on the scene in Ashmole Road, West Bromwich, reports Birmingham Mail .

Shocking images, shared by Mr Sillah’s wife, show deep wounds on the top and back of the victim’s head.

Nyima Sillah, who is expecting the couple’s second child, says she has been unable to sleep since the attack as her husband’s house keys were also taken.

Police are now investigating the incident, which took place on July 18.

Mahamadou’s wife, Nyima, told Black Country Live: “Within less than a minute around five or six of them – including a man in his 50s holding a baseball bat – started attacking him.

“He managed to hit one them and tried to get the golf club from him – but the rest went to help that one. Another of the men went behind him and hit him on his head.

“He blacked out and fell on the ground but they kept hitting him on his head, ribs and the rest of his body.

“They took his car and house keys and left him for dead.”

Mr Sillah was rushed to hospital after the attack.

His injuries were not serious but his wife said he was still suffering from migraines.

She said: “We been through hell in the past three days, I could have lost my husband and we have a three-year-old daughter and another one due soon.”

“Right now I am in fear because they have the key and our address, they could trace us and come and find us.

“He was in A&E until the next morning. He is now at home unable to go to work and in a few months we will be expecting our second child.”

“I myself was in triage to yesterday morning due to the shock and stress.
