Autistic man "extremely traumatised" after assault

Caroline Williams Reporter from Western Leader

Green Bay local Bradlee Mackay, 23, was left traumatised and with bruises on his face after he was allegedly "beaten up" by a man and a woman near the Green Bay shops on Monday afternoon.
Mackay, 23, has a mental age of 8 and only gained enough confidence to walk to the shops alone in the last few years.
Mackay often found it hard to explain things, older sister Karlee Brokenshire said, and would not speak to her on the phone following the incident, which was "very unlike him".
The family encourages anyone with information to get in touch with the police.
