Teenage boy attacked in Grantham park
A 14-year-old boy was the victim of an unprovoked assault in Wyndham Park on Saturday, just two days after a female was pushed in Dysart Park while out walking her dog, who was also kicked.
The teenage boy was assaulted by an offender who was described as wearing a dark green hoodie. He was then assaulted by other offenders.
The victim was left with facial injuries that required hospital treatment including stitching for a cut lip.
A police spokesman said: "The incident occurred at around 7pm on Saturday June 2. A 14 year old boy was the victim of an unprovoked assault in Wyndham Park. The initial assault was committed by an offender described as wearing a dark green hoodie, male, heavy set and believed to be aged in his teens. Further offenders also believed to be in their teens, wearing hoodies have then assaulted the victim.
"We would like to urge anyone who saw this incident, or who knows the identity of the offender to get in touch.”
The attack comes just days after a female reported being pushed in Dysart Park last Thursday.
A police spokesman said: "Incident 380 of 31 May was reported at around 6:30pm. An altercation resulted in a dog walker being pushed and her dog being kicked. There were no injuries.”
