Investigators from Bedfordshire Police have appealed to the public for information, after a teenage boy was attacked by a group of young men in Bedford yesterday evening (Thursday).
At around 6pm, the victim was walking with a friend in London Road when he was approached by a group of ten men, who knocked him to the floor before kicking and stamping on him.
The group then made off, leaving the victim requiring hospital treatment.
Officers have so far arrested four people in relation to the incident and enquiries are continuing to identify and locate those involved.
The offenders are described as wearing grey and black clothing, hooded tops, and dark and white trainers.
Detective Sergeant Karl Heywood, investigating, said: “This was a really violent incident involving a large group of ten setting upon just one individual.
“The attack took place at a busy time of day and it’s likely that people in the area could have seen this incident or the offenders as they made off.
“I would urge anyone with information to get in touch right away.”
Anyone with information can contact officers via our online reporting centre or by calling 101, quoting reference 40/10985/22.
Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously via Crimestoppers or by calling 0800 555 111.
