Two teenagers attacked in Kidderminster park

TWO teenagers have been attacked in a Kidderminster park.

The assault took place in Brinton Park between 4.15pm and 4.50pm on Sunday when a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl were approached by a large group of youngsters fronted by two girls - both thought to also be in their teens.

As the 15-year-old and 14-year-olds tried to walk away from the group the boy was hit with a stick, causing reddening to one of his arms and the girl he was with was punched in the face and fell to the ground.

She suffered a cut cheek but neither of the victims required medical attention.

Both of the attackers were white and one was believed to be aged 13, was tall and thin with brown, tied-up hair and heavy make-up. She wore a beige coat and dark-coloured jeans.

According to police, the other appeared slightly older, about 15 or 16 years old and was tall and stocky with brown hair and possibly a red streak in it. She was wearing a black, Barbour-style jacket and blue jeans.

PC Becky Edwards said: “This was an unprovoked attack during which one of the victims was struck with a stick.

“We want to hear from anyone who was in the park and saw this incident or knows any of the people who were in the group including the girls who carried out the assault and can give us their names.”

Anyone with information can contact PC Edwards at Kidderminster Police Station on 101, quoting incident reference 90-N-070413, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Didn't the police advise not using the park at night; perhaps they should update that notice to "or during the day"?
