The man who was seriously injured in the sectarian clashes that claimed the life of Coleraine man Kevin McDaid is understood to have been the victim of yet another assault.
Damien Fleming was left for dead after a loyalist mob attack near his home following disturbances between Rangers and Celtic fans in May.
His friend, community worker Mr McDaid, was murdered just a few yards away.
Mr Fleming is believed to have been assaulted again on his way home at Pate’s Lane in Coleraine’s Heights area late on Wednesday night.
Two men got out of a parked car and kicked and pushed him before fleeing the scene.
Just last month Mr Fleming spoke to the Belfast Telegraph of his fears of being attacked again.
The 46-year-old said he was still suffering physically and psychologically after the assault.
He was in hospital for a month, and said that since his release has been struggling to put his life back together.
“I'm just worried about who might go after me next. I have been getting a bit of abuse on the streets,” he said.
On Tuesday, the High Court heard that more than 20 people were under death threat following Mr McDaid’s murder.
Police have confirmed they are treating the incident at Pate's Lane as sectarian.
