Two Boys Brutally Attacked in Wootton

Beds Police are hunting two men who brutally attacked two boys in Wootton.

The teenagers were sitting on the swings at the Church Road recreation ground, behind the village hall at ten to four on Tuesday afternoon when two Asian men came up being them.

One picked up the boys' rugby ball and then accused a teenager of making racist comments about his wife.

The teenager denied saying anything, but the men attacked the boys, pinning both to the playground's chain link fence and brutally attacking them.

They strangled them, hit them with their fists and kicked them.

The offenders then suddenly stopped their attack but continued to threaten the victims as they left the area making off towards Church Road, heading in the direction of Hall End Road, towards the school.

One suffered a dislocated shoulder plus multiple bruising to his body while the other teenager had severe grazes to his neck and face.

The first attacker  is described as a clean-shaven Asian male with short black hair, spiked up with gel. He was aged between 20 and 26 years old, of a medium build wearing white hoody with dark writing on the front and dark denim jeans

The second was described as a clean shaven Asian male 5 feet 9 inches tall, between 20 and 24 years old, of slim build, with a small face and large big eyes. He was also wearing hoody and denim jeans.

PC Aroop Nandre, investigating, said: "This was a vicious and unprovoked attack upon two teenagers who were minding their own businesses. These offenders undertook a sustained and serious assault upon them and made threats against them when they left. We want to track them down before they attack again and cause even more serious injuries. It is easy enough for anyone who saw the incident or knows these men to contact me on 01234 841212. We particularly want to talk to a man seen in a silver Citroen car parked in the village hall car park who may have seen the incident or the offenders leaving. Help us to stop them attacking again."
