A man shared his horrific injuries after he says he was "left for dead" when four women and a man brutally assaulted him on him way home from a party.
Johnny Connors, 30, said four women repeatedly jumped on his chest and ribs "like a bounty castle" while wearing high heels on Saturday night, Dublin Live reports.
He was also kicked and punched by the lone man in the group and believed the thugs would have kept going if it wasn’t for a passer-by.
The barber said a local heard the commotion outside a house in Wicklow, a town south of Dublin in Ireland, and confronted the assailants who fled the scene.
He told Dublin Live: "I was at my friend's house warming, I had just gone down to wish them luck and give them a gift for their new home.
"I was going getting the bus home and my friend said she'd walk me down. We passed the group of five – four women and one man. They were in their late teens to mid-20s at most.
"One of them said 'any alcohol on you?' I said no but they kept asking.
"As they got more aggressive I offered them a cigarette but that wasn't good enough for them, they wanted drink."
Johnny was then struck with a single blow to the face before the group pounced on him and beat him black and blue.
He said: "I got a punch to the head and I said what was that for? Next thing I remember was their high heels coming off and they started jamming them into my face.
"The man started punching me and kicking me on the ground. I was begging them to stop, they wouldn't stop.
"They didn't hurt my friend, I don't know why, they just picked on me. One of the girls kept saying to my friend, 'I don't want to hurt him' as she kept attacking me with her heel. It all happened so quickly.
"Thankfully a local came out from the house and they all fled when they were asked what was going on.
"I would have been killed if that person didn't come out."

Johnny said he is "happy to be alive" but wants justice and is asking anyone who may have witnessed the attack or has CCTV to come forward.
He said: "I have to pay for a big medical bill from the hospital, when really it should be those five people paying my bill.
"I really hope someone out there has vital information about the gang or the attack that will help catch them.

"I want to make people aware that even if you're walking with someone, you can't be too safe. Make sure you're walking in large groups and be aware of your surroundings at all times."
A Garda spokesman confirmed the assault on Johnny took place on Saturday but there have been no arrests yet.
She said: "Gardaí are investigating an assault which occurred in Dargle Crescent, Bray, Wicklow."
