Nuneaton Telegraph - - FRONT PAGE -

PO­LICE have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter a 16-year-old boy was at­tacked by a group of teenagers on a busy street.

War­wick­shire Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion fol­low­ing the as­sault out­side WH Smith, on Mar­ket Street, in War­wick.

The of­fence is be­lieved to have taken place at about 8.30pm on Satur­day when the vic­tim was ap­proached by a group of teenagers.

An ar­gu­ment is un­der­stood to have taken place which re­sulted in the teenager be­ing grabbed and punched caus­ing him to fall and hit his head. He was then kicked as he lay on the floor.

The boy was taken to hos­pi­tal where he re­ceived treat­ment but was not found to have suf­fered any se­ri­ous in­juries.

Det Sgt Lisa Sears said: “This was a pro­longed and con­cern­ing at­tack and we would like to speak to in­di­vid­u­als who were in the area at the time of the in­ci­dent.

“We are par­tic­u­larly keen to speak to any­one who might have taken video footage at the time of the in­ci­dent.

“It is be­lieved to be a tar­geted at­tack in­volv­ing in­di­vid­u­als who are known to each other.”

Any­one with any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion is asked to call po­lice on 101, quot­ing in­ci­dent num­ber 336 of 15 Oc­to­ber 2016.

This scheme would be good for Coven­try City as a club, Coven­try as a city... how­ever, at this time the scheme can­not move for­ward
