Harry Potter dwarf attacked in pub

Washington, Jan 13 (ANI): A dwarf Harry Potter actor has to now rely on a wheelchair after he was attacked by thugs.

Martin Henderson, who is four feet, two inches tall, was smoking outside a pub in Somerset, southwest England during his 37th birthday celebration in October 2011 when he was picked up and dropped to the ground.

"I was at the back of the pub outside and the next thing I know I'm suddenly in the air and someone has got hold of me. I managed to get up and after some swearing I went into the pub and three men who had been there earlier had left. I then went to hospital because I started to feel numb in my back and legs," Contactmusic quoted Henderson as saying.

"I had surgery on my back in 2010 and was making really good progress and my surgeon was really happy with me. But then this happened and it's kicked it all off again. I keep falling over and I found out today that I have fractured my arm," he said.

Henderson was left with injuries to his back and legs, and now relies on a stick or zimmer frame to walk, and a wheelchair for longer journeys.

"Every time I stand up I don't know if I'm going to fall over. I will have to use a wheelchair and I won't get any acting jobs," he said.

"I guess I was an easy target and the only reason I was picked on was because I am small. People's attitudes to me when I go out can be pretty cruel... You just have to ignore it but this is the first time I have been picked up and thrown about," he added.

Police is investigating the attack and has appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

"Officers investigating would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the pub on the night of October 7. It follows an incident in which a small person was picked up by an unknown person in the bar and dropped," a police spokesperson said. (ANI)
