Teenagers assaulted in separate incidents outside Wisbech shop and behind Rose and Crown Hotel

A BOY was assaulted outside a Wisbech convenience store and a teenager was seriously injured in a fight behind the town’s Rose and Crown Hotel.

A 13-year-old boy bumped into two teenagers in Londis, in Tinker’s Drove, at 7pm last Wednesday. The teenagers followed the boy outside and punched him in the face.

The offenders are described as white, aged 14-15. The first was about 5ft 7in, slim, wearing a grey and pink hooded top. The second had black hair and was wearing a grey tracksuit.

Det Con Nigel Coppin said: “This was a nasty attack on a young child.

“It is believed there was a group of young people outside the shop who may have witnessed the assault. I would appeal to them to come forward.”
