Assault on teenager
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was assaulted near Ashford’s Asda store.
It happened shortly after 6.30pm on Friday, March 13 on the pathway behind the store in Kimberly Way.
A 14-year-old speaking on his iPhone saw four youths loitering by the gate to the park, and one demanded he handed over the phone.
He refused and another of the youths threatened him. A scuffle followed as he refused to hand over the phone and the gang walked away, taking the right fork towards Herbert Road.
The offender was about 15, of skinny build, with spots on his cheeks and a straight shave mark on his right eyebrow. He was wearing a grey hooded top, black tracksuit bottoms and white trainers.
Anyone with information is asked to call PC Vince Fedder on 01303 289180.
