POLICE in Redditch are appealing for witnesses following an assault in the town last Tuesday, April 3.
At approximately 8pm, a 15-year-old boy was walking with a friend on Bromsgrove Road towards Redditch United Football Club when he was attacked by two other males near the Trades and Labour Club.
He was punched and kicked, suffering injuries to his face, arms and legs. However he did not require hospital treatment.
It is believed the offenders may have followed the victim and his friend from the bus station where there was a bigger group of males gathered.
After the incident, the offenders left in the direction of Ipsley Street.
Both attackers are described as Asian. One was aged around 17, 6ft 3ins tall, of a stocky build with short black hair. He was wearing a grey puffa jacket and blue jeans.
The other was aged around 15 to 16 years old, about 5ft 10ins tall and of a slim build. He was wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.
