Two Wimbledon teens face court
Four people - including two Wimbledon teenagers - have been charged after a tram stop attack which left a man with serious head injuries.
A 14-year-old and a 17-year-old from Wimbledon, were charged along with a 17-year-old from Morden and Lee Bridger, 18, of Campden Road, Croydon.
The alleged attack took place at East Croydon tram stop at 1.05am on Saturday August 4.
A group of youths were reported to have attacked the 32-year-old victim, from Norbury, after he refused to give one of them a lighter.
The man, who had just left a tram with his mother and girlfriend, was then set upon by the group, leaving him unconscious for a short period.
The victim received what were initially described as life-threatening injuries, including bleeding to the brain and a fractured eye socket.
All four people charged will appear at Croydon Youth Court on Monday (September 10).
