Two short men find scapegoat (6)
I believe the answer is:
'scapegoat' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
I cannot understand how the remainder of the clue works.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for victim that I've seen before include "Person tricked, swindled or wronged" , "Person killed, hurt or abused" , "Fall guy" , "Target of e.g. criminal" , "Person injured or killed by another" .)
