Teenage brothers punched and kicked in 'unprovoked attack' in Grantham car park
Police are appealing for witnesses after a 19-year-old and 16-year-old were both assaulted as they approached their vehicle in Tesco Express car park on Harrowby Lane, Grantham at around 8.30pm on Tuesday October 1.
The two victims were approached by a group of about six or seven unknown males who have assaulted both males by punching and kicking them before running off.
The 16-year-old male was repeatedly punched and kicked in the face by one of the males in the group who was described as wearing a puffer jacket with a hood which was pulled up over his face only showing his eyes.
The 16-year-old received a fracture to his cheek bone as a result of this assault and his 19-year-old brother has sustained bruising and a cut to the back of his head.
Both were taken to hospital where they were treated for their injuries.
Detective constable Sally Sands said: “We believe this was an unprovoked attack on these two men.
“We would like to speak with any witnesses to this assault, anyone who may have entered the car park around that time with a working dashcam or anyone with any information on who the offenders might be.”
