An appeal for witnesses has been launched by Thames Valley Police following an assault in High Wycombe.
On Saturday 11th September 2021, at approximately 4.30pm, a young boy was cycling with three others in the car park of the Swan Theatre when they were approached by a larger group of boys.
The larger group of boys, all of whom were aged between 14 and 16 years old, managed to corner the young boy and assaulted him by punching him to the floor and repeatedly kicking him.
As a result of the assault the young boy suffered bruising to his head and face as well as a cut to his arm and was treated at the scene by paramedics, but did not require further treatment.
On Sunday 12th September 2021 police arrested two 15 year old boys and a 14 year old boy, all from High Wycombe, on suspicion of assault . They have since been released on police bail until Friday 8th October 2021 while investigations continue.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Emily Sendall, of Slough CID, said: ‘This was a violent and unprovoked attack on a young boy, and I am appealing to anybody who witnessed what happened to please contact police.
I am particularly keen to hear from anybody who may have CCTV or dash-cam footage from the area to please check this and contact us if it has captured anything that can assist the investigation.
Thankfully, although shaken by the incident, the victim is recovering well, but we are committed to investigating this offence thoroughly.
