Police hunt attackers of 16-year-old boy

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was assaulted in an unprovoked attack Morecambe.

At 9.30pm on Tuesday 18th June, the teenager was walking along Out Moss Lane, near to the Trimpell Club when he was approached by another male, possibly in his late teens, who punched him.

As the 16 year old tried to defend himself, a female then lashed out at him with a bottle and, as he held up his hands to protect himself, the bottle smashed causing cuts to his hands.

The male and female were then pulled away from the victim by two other people they were in company with and they all left in the direction of Newlands Road.

The male is described as having an Irish accent, with collar length, dark brown, greasy hair and was wearing dark trousers. The female is also described as having an Irish accent, with straight, shoulder length, blonde hair and was wearing black jogging bottoms and a black cardigan.

PC Ben Hanley said: “This was a nasty, unprovoked assault which has left the teenager with cuts to his hands and slight injuries to his face, as well as being understandably shaken by the incident.

“If anybody was in the area at the time and thinks they may have seen this group and in particular the male and female involved then I would urge them to come forward.”
