Victim of notorious Hither Green burglar family conned out of £60k suffers horrific acid attack in own home

Henry Vincent died after suffering a stab wound during a raid on 78-year-old Richard Osborn-Brooks’ home

I’m beginning to suspect that this isn’t a very nice family.

A victim of the notorious Henry Vincent family has ­suffered a horrific acid ­attack in his own home.

The 60-year-old man had been conned out of £6,000 by relatives of burglar Vincent, who was stabbed to death during a break-in by householder Richard Osborn-Brooks.

David Vincent, 50, and his son, also David, 26, preyed on the man by ­doing work on his roof that did not need to be done.

The man complained to police, who arrested the pair.

…A  few weeks later the victim ­answered his door in Dartford, Kent, and had acid thrown at his face.

He suffered burns to his neck and only escaped being blinded because he was wearing glasses.
