Teenagers at­tacked by masked youths

Bray People - - NEWS -

TWO TEENAGERS were as­saulted by a gang of youths last Satur­day evening in a field on the No­vara Av­enue area.

The boys were set upon and beaten up by a gang of teenagers wear­ing bal­a­clavas. One of them was car­ry­ing a baton. One of the vic­tims was taken to hospi­tal fol­low­ing the at­tack and treated for a head in­jury. He was kept in overnight. Gar­dai in Bray said that the call came in just after 6 p.m. and the as­sault re­ported. Gar­dai said that they have spo­ken to a num­ber of wit­nesses, in­clud­ing the brother of one of the young men and the fa­ther of an­other.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing and gar­dai are ap­peal­ing for any­one who saw any­thing linked to the in­ci­dent to come for­ward.
