Teen assaulted at Morecambe bus stop

(Updated, 22/4/13: Police incorrectly advised on date of assault, corrected): Detectives are appealing for information after a 14 year old boy was assaulted at a bus stop in Morecambe.

The teenager was punched by another male in an unprovoked attack as he was waiting for a bus on Westminster Road at 3.10pm on Thursday 28th March.

He then picked up a piece of slate and struck the 14 year old in the face causing a severe injury to his right eye.

The teenager was treated at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and was later discharged but he is continuing to undergo treatment.

Detective Constable Tris Hardwick said: “This was a nasty and unprovoked assault which has left the teenager with a serious injury to his eye, the full extent of which is still unknown.

“If anybody has any information about this assault or knows who is responsible please contact police.”

A 16 year old boy from Morecambe has been arrested on suspicion of section 20 wounding and has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

• Anybody with any information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
