The 76-year-old, who had a heart attack last year, now says he’s been petrified of leaving his home.
He was left battered and bruised by the bitter attack last week when the gang beat him armed with a weapon that he believes was a chain or dog lead.
Roy defiantly wrestled with the masked boys who repeatedly punched and kicked him before eventually running off.
Video evidence of their horrific abuse was shared widely online but the brazen youths are still refusing to leave the OAP alone.
Now the pensioner‘s latest doorbell cam footage has revealed how the shameless youths returned to jeer at him this week.
The video from early on Monday evening showed the gang back at Roy’s house only days after the brutal assault was caught on camera – and just hours after it was shared online.
In this recent clip the masked thugs taunt the OAP on his doorstep, hurling a foul-mouthed abuse at the poor man.
The doorbell footage shows the lads laughing and shouting “come on p****” and “d***head”.
Roy can be seen coming out of his door bravely to tell them “you better clear off” before one of them arrogantly sneers: “Remember me from last time yeah?”
The grandfather-of-nine says the gang then chillingly warned “we’ll be back again” before they ran off down the street.
He added: “I saw them coming down the road and thought ‘here we go again’. I went out to tell them to go away and they were just laughing at me.
“They surrounded me and were swearing and then warned ‘we’ll be back again’ and left so I’m worried now because of how much this has escalated.
“Even after this footage has been shared across the world they still come back, it’s like they are getting a kick out of it.
“I just want the police to do something about it because they are out of control. It’s just getting beyond a joke. I don’t know why I’m being targeted.”
He says police have failed to act despite the fact he’s being targeted by up to 14 youths every day – he’s terrified of leaving his house.
In his fear, Roy has written to West Midlands Police’s Chief Constable Sir David Thompson in a last ditch plea for help.
He said: “At my age I shouldn’t be forced to take the law into my own hands – especially after having a heart attack – but I don’t know what else to do.
“The police just don’t seem interested. It has slowly escalated and I’m worried what is going to happen next.
“It began with them just banging on the doors, they shout abuse and trample my garden. They throw stones at my house. It’s all a laugh to them.
“But somebody must recognise them. All the police ever do is come and record it and go away.
“They even said to me, be careful what I do in future because it could me that ends up getting into trouble. All I’m doing it trying to protect my home.
“The police say ignore them, but they need to sort them out because its giving them the message they can get away with his behaviour.
“I’m scared to go out now and I’m constantly checking my CCTV or looking out my window. The stress is not good for me.”
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said previously: “We’re investigating after receiving reports of a man in his 70s being the victim of assault and harassment in Great Barr.
“We fully understand how distressing this is and are looking to safeguard the man while progressing enquiries to establish those responsible.
“Officers from the local neighbourhood policing team are aware of ongoing anti-social behaviour and are routinely monitoring the area as part of their patrols strategy.
“We take all allegations of harassment incredibly seriously, and we are committed to ensuring the safety of our community.
