After being run over four times by a “neighbour from hell” at his home in Spain, an ex-commando of the Royal Navy says he feels “lucky to be alive” and is grateful to be alive.

In La Viuela, Malaga, David James, 80, was brutally attacked by a fellow Brit on his doorstep.

The suspect, a retired councillor from northern England in his early 70s, has been charged with attempted murder and is being held in jail while his case is being heard.

According to court documents, the neighbor, who goes by the initials D.B., is also accused of a number of other offenses because the incident also left three other people hurt.

David, a former police officer, said this week while speaking from his hospital bed: “I really thought I was a goner.

“I’ve broken multiple bones in my face, fractured my pelvis and ribs, lost all of my teeth, and I’m lucky to be alive.”

Around 5 o’clock on August 12 as David, a grandfather of one, his wife, and their friends were leaving a luncheon, the shocking incident took place.

David claims that this is when the wife of his next-door neighbor ran hysterically out of their driveway.

She yelled, “He’s going to kill me, he’s going to kill me,” David recalled.

The neighbor allegedly then came out of his driveway “visibly highly intoxicated”.

David and another local blocked off the end of the road with their cars after noticing that he had his keys in his hand and being concerned that he might take off while intoxicated.

When the alleged assailant finally came to a stop, David made the decision to approach him and remove the keys from the ignition.

The moment his engine began to rev, the man claimed, “I knew what was going to happen; he came at me at full speed and knocked me against the wall.”

“I hit my head and I thought I was going to die, but I was still awake.

He ran me over a third time, this time on my arm, before running me over a final time while in reverse.

“It was like a scene from a Hollywood film.”

Before they were able to drag David onto his driveway and behind its access gate, horrified neighbors could be heard screaming.

The alleged attacker then rammed his car into the gate, which is still dented and broken. Neighbors described him as a “madman.”

David, a grandfather of five, continued, “It was terrifying. He got out of his car and attempted to stab me with a pole.

A “years-long reign of terror” has been inflicted on the neighbors by the suspect, who has lived in the area for at least ten years, according to witnesses.

But the accused attacker allegedly tried to attack David before.

After D.B. allegedly attempted to attack him with an axe 18 months ago, the ex-commando was compelled to make a formal police complaint.

Although David claims this occurred because his wife had just received a cancer diagnosis and the family did not want to become involved in a legal dispute, the dispute was resolved out of court.

David, who spent 12 years in the Royal Navy, continued, “I told the local authority of every previous incident that occurred and I told them he was going to kill somebody one day, although I didn’t know that person would almost be me.”

He is a blight on our oasis, said a British neighbor who asked to remain anonymous. David became the urbanization’s president five years ago, and I believe he is the only one to actually stand up to him, and he doesn’t like it.

He’s the neighbor from hell, according to the numerous complaints that have been made about him. “He has tried to stop most of David’s ideas to improve the development.”

A comment from the Guardia Civil has been requested.
