Subsequently they have been back several times to throw eggs at his door, trash his garden etc. I think yesterday they came back with a whole gang of people who surrounded his house. It sounds just awful. Not sure of the details as S was understandably very upset yesterday, texting me from the house while this was going on. He's had to move out of the house for a few days (I think he's staying with friends this weekend). May have to move entirely. How dreadful is that, just for helping an old man?
I'm just posting to say hang in there, and I'm sure everyone reading this will be sending their best wishes that it all gets sorted soon. What a world we live in.
