His father, Paul Davey, from Havant, was quoted by the MailOnline website as saying: “He’s never shown any violent tendencies before. He’s never been a bad person.
“He’s a nice kid and literally wouldn’t hurt a fly – he used to tell us not to use fly spray because he didn’t want any flies to die.”
Davey said someone must have coerced or “radicalised” his son into attacking the presidential candidate. “He has never mentioned Donald Trump. The reason it is such a shock is because he shows no interest in anything like that...I doubt he would even know who the president of the United States is.”
In a separate interview with the Portsmouth News, he added: “Whether he’s been blackmailed or put up to it, that’s the only thing me and his mum can think of. It’s so against his nature and obviously with his Asperger’s, we think somebody has got hold of him and done something.”

If their son was so weak-minded then why was he allowed to go to the USA on his own?
