Appeal for witnesses following assault on Leigh Road, Havant

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was assaulted on Leigh Road in Havant.

It was reported to us that last Tuesday (16 November) at approximately 7.15pm the boy was walking along Leigh Road when he was approached at the junction with Russell Road by a group of three or four boys.

The boy was then assaulted by the group, causing injuries to his face.

The group were wearing black tracksuits and had their tops pulled up over their faces.

Police believe that a car drove past and caused them to run away.

Officers have been conducting a number of enquiries to identify the group and are now turning to the public for help.

Were you in the area the time? Did you see what happened or see the group in the aftermath of the incident? Perhaps you were in the vehicle that drove past? Maybe you have dash cam footage from the area at the time?

Anyone with any information that may assist our enquiries, no matter how small it may seem, is asked to call police on 101 quoting 44210461067.
