Two teenagers have been arrested by police in connection with a violent attack on a man on The Parade in Watford, a video of which recently circulated on social media.
The boys, aged 13 and 14 respectively, both currently remain in police custody on suspicion of affray, having been arrested this morning.
The incident took place at around 5am on Sunday, July 10, where a man was reportedly followed before being assaulted by a group of males.
The 13-year-old has also been further arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm following a separate incident in New Street on the same morning, where another man was allegedly assaulted.
Detective Inspector Chris Parperi, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “Although two arrests have been made, enquiries into the incident are continuing and we are still appealing for anyone with information about what happened to please come forward.
“We are also aware that footage of the incident is currently circulating online and we would ask that people please refrain from sharing this, to avoid causing any legal issues for the case moving forward. Thank you.”
