Appeal After Teen Injured In Chelmsford Attack

Essex police is appealing for witnesses to a vicious assault on an 18-year-old boy in Chelmsford town centre.

Just after midnight on Thursday, September 15, 2011 the boy was punched in Tindal Square and suffered a broken nose and cuts to his face.

It is believed that the boy, who was with a group of friends, had been followed from Duke Street by two men before being assaulted near HSBC bank.

The suspect who punched the boy is described as a white man, around 6ft to 6ft 3in tall and of a large muscular build.

He was aged between 17 and 20 and was wearing a dark jacket or jumper with some yellow colouring, dark trousers and dark shoes.

The suspect was accompanied by a white man who was of skinny build and had a pale complexion. He was about 5ft 8in tall and was wearing a light coloured jacket.

Investigating officer Pc Basaras said: "Police are convinced that there are people in the community who know who was responsible for this vicious assault on a young lad simply making his way home after a night out.

"If you know anything about this incident please contact officers at Chelmsford police station on 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
