I met my friends new friend a few weeks ago and he was really nice to me, he has quite a warped sense of humour and offends people a lot but people are just used to it. When we met he was quite friendly and chatty and he offered to buy me drinks, walk me home etc (my friends went clubbing and I didn't fancy it so I was left in a bar with him and a few others) I declined his offers anyway and got a taxi home, but I thought he was a pretty decent guy.
After going out with him a few more times (with friends), I thought he was pretty immature, he calls girls horrible names and thinks it's funny, but he didn't say anything to offend me too much.
Anyway, last week my friend wanted to pick him up from somewhere, so she asked me to tag along. He was very drunk and with his other friends. They all got into the back seat and I was in the front. (I forgot to add - I was in an accident when I was little so I have an injury, it's not always noticeable to people so he probably didn't know when we first met, but now he does.)
So him now knowing about my injury, he started shouting horrible things at me whilst my friend was trying to drive, then he started throwing things at me and shaking the car seat I was sitting on, then he started hitting me on the head and when I turned around to ask him to stop, he slapped me around the face. (Not very hard, but it still upset me!)
His friends seemed to be pretty shocked about him doing all this, so he started telling them that because of my injury (which is a physical injury!) That I have downs syndrome, mental problems etc (I don't have any mental problems.)
My friend who was driving seemed to be speechless by the time she dropped me home, but didn't say anything (probably to not upset me) and she hasn't met him since (I don't think she has anyway).
I saw him last night and he started shouting abuse at me again (he's 22 btw!!) I actually expected an apology, but obviously not. I just don't know what to do anymore, I really don't want to go out anymore in the evenings incase he is around, all he wants to do is humiliate me! I've never hit someone before but I just want to punch him in his smug face, he makes me so angry.
Also, he upset one of my friends once by calling her a nasty name and he was full of apologies and even sent flowers to her. I wasn't expecting this, but I thought I'd get an apology not more abuse!
Any ideas on what I should do about him?
