Officers are appealing for information and witnesses following an assault in Watford.

At around 8pm on Sunday, May 5, the victim, a 17 year old boy, was walking from the King George V Playing Fields towards Tolpits Lane with his friends, when a group of around 14 teenagers approached them.

One of the teenagers had a metal pole and struck the victim over the head, causing an injury that required hospital treatment. The group then made off from the scene in different directions.

The group, who were all males, are described as being in their late teens and were wearing casual clothing.

Detective Constable Julie Vint, who is investigating, said: “I am appealing for anyone who was in the area and might have witnessed what happened to get in touch. 

“I would also like to hear from anyone who assisted the victim. If you can help, please call the non-emergency number 101 or email me at quoting crime reference 41/40465/19.”
