The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Cameras In Your Community -

PO­LICE are link­ing two at­tacks which hap­pened on the same day in Hunt­ing­don and God­manch­ester.

The first hap­pened in Butts­grove Way, Hunt­ing­don, at about 4pm on Tues­day, May 8 where two boys, who were wheel­ing their bikes near the road’s junc­tion with May­field Road, were punched and pushed over by a gang of six teenagers who had come run­ning to­wards them from Amer­i­can Lane.

The gang asked what the time was on their mo­bile phones. They said they did not have phones and they were punched and pushed to the floor.

One of the boys suf­fered a se­ri­ous in­jury to his face and was treated in hospi­tal. The other boy suf­fered mi­nor in­juries.

The at­tack­ers made off empty handed. They were de­scribed as hav­ing Ir­ish ac­cents and wear­ing suits, although one was also wear­ing a hooded top. The main of­fender was de­scribed as 13 to 17 years old, 5ft 6ins, with an Ir­ish ac­cent and wear­ing a white shirt and dark trousers.

The sec­ond in­ci­dent hap­pened be­tween 6.15pm and 6.50pm on the same day out­side Cost­cut­ters in God­manch­ester where a 12-year-old boy was ap­proached by three youths who asked to see his phone. He re­fused and was punched to the head.

DC Hol­lie Daines said: “These were cow­ardly and un­pro­voked as­saults.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call 101 or Crimestop­pers on 0800 555111.
