Summary: 

A jogger has told how he was almost drowned by a canal-path thug - and only escaped by speaking to them in Arabic. Dad-of-two Lee Skinner, 38, was punched in the face and knocked into the freezing water as he ran past five hooded youths in  . As he struggled to get out of the cold, slippery canal the thug who punched him was waiting - until the former language teacher started speaking Arabic. The shame-faced gang, all aged around 17, then fled the scene and the attacker is now being hunted by police.
