Lecturer Paul Kohler wants to know why he was attacked

A university lecturer who needed facial reconstruction surgery after he was savagely beaten at his home said he wanted to know why he was attacked.

Paul Kohler, 55, who attacked in Kings Road, Wimbledon on 11 August, told BBC London: "We need to find out why they did it.

"It's something that's important to my wife, my children and me."

At Kingston Crown Court, on Wednesday, Pawel Honc, 23, and Mariusz Tomaszewski, 32, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent and aggravated burglary.

Oskar Pawlowicz and Dawid Tychon, both 29, admitted aggravated burglary but denied causing GBH with intent.

The four men will be sentenced in January.
