Police are appealing for information and witnesses after an assault in Grantham in the early hours of Sunday 20th September.
At just after midnight on the 20th the victim, a 16-year-old boy, was with another teenager when they crossed the road a few metres in front of a vehicle which was travelling quickly along Stonebridge Road in Grantham. The vehicle, which had three men in it, then pulled up and two of the occupants got out and assaulted the victim. The men got back in to the vehicle, which is believed to have been a silver BMW, and drove off prior to police arrival.
The victim was not seriously injured in the assault but suffered swelling and bruising as a result.
The road where the assault took place is usually busy, even during the early hours, and is overlooked by flats. Investigating officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything to do with the assault, or anyone who may have any information that may be relevant to the enquiry.
Anyone with any information is asked to call Lincolnshire Police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 3 of 20/09/2015. Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
