After the incident occurred, people who were around were afraid that Wayne had passed away on the sidewalk. A person who saw what happened spoke to The Sun and stated that it was a very unpleasant experience to witness. The attackers fled the scene after assaulting Wayne.

The teenager, who is 18 years old, shared with the media: "It was a terrible experience - at one moment, it seemed like Wayne had stopped breathing. He collapsed to the ground, and the group of men quickly dispersed. Wayne was out cold and unresponsive. When he finally regained consciousness, he was barely able to speak. I remained by his side to provide assistance, and the authorities arrived, albeit briefly - they didn't do anything significant and left soon after."
