A father who was beaten to a bloody pulp on his front doorstep by an alleged ice addict in a random early-morning attack is battling to keep his eyesight.
Grant O'Neill, 45, from Craigieburn in north Melbourne, rushed downstairs when he heard shouting and banging on his front door.
Opening the door to stop the noises from waking his children, he says he was savagely attacked by a neighbour high on the drug ice.
'He tried to rip my eye out and just kept kicking me,' he told 7 News.
According to eyewitness,Mr O'Neill was repeatedly struck and stomped on until he eventually blacked out in front of his horrified wife
