Teenager assaulted in Rushden

Witnesses to an incident where a boy was attacked by other teenagers in Rushden are being encouraged to contact officers investigating the assault.

Between 5.15pm and 5.45pm on Saturday, April 13, a 15-year-old boy was involved in a group dispute in Spencer Park before being chased from The Greenway, next to Asda, onto Rectory Road, near to East Grove, by two girls and a boy.

The boy was pulled to the ground and punched and kicked by the other boy before breaking free.

He was then restrained again and pushed in front of a moving car, possibly a blue Ford Focus, hitting his head on the bonnet as he fell to the ground.

As he lay on the floor his arm was run over, causing minor injuries. It is believed those in the car are linked to the boy’s attackers.

The suspects are described as a white girl with black or dark brown hair, of slim build and aged 16-17, a white girl with blondish hair, blue eyes, of slim build and aged 14-15, and a white boy with blondish hair, around 5ft 6in with brown-blue eyes, aged 14-15.

Several members of the public were in the area at the time, including some who spoke to the victim immediately afterwards. Officers would like to hear from those people about what they saw.

Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers in confidence on 0800 555111.
