An appeal is being made for witnesses to what's described as a 'nasty' and 'unprovoked' attack in Salisbury.

A 17-year-old boy was assaulted on Castle Road.

It happened at about 12.40am on Sunday 3 September, but Police have only just released details.

The victim and a woman were walking along Castle Road in Salisbury, when a group of teenage boys, aged between 14 and 16, came out of Victoria Park, near to the Co-Op supermarket and began following the pair.

In an unprovoked attack, the 17-year-old was pushed to the ground and kicked several times by members of the younger gang.

The victim suffered injuries to his nose and ear.


PC Gary Underwood from Wiltshire Police told Spire FM News:

"A member of the public stopped their vehicle around 10 metres from the group and shouted at them to stop. The group then ran off... towards Hudson's Field."

"We'd really like to speak to this person or anyone who may have seen the incident unfold - this was a nasty, unprovoked attack on this man and we are really keen to find those responsible."

Anyone with information should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
