Teenage boy in Weymouth required hospital treatment following assault

Police officers are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to come forward as they investigate an assault on a teenage boy in Weymouth.

It is reported that at around 5.30pm on Monday 19 February 2024 the victim was approached by a group of six young people near the skate park at The Marsh playing fields in Knightsdale Road. He was reportedly punched multiple times in the head by a male member of the group wearing a black hooded top, black trousers, black trainers and wearing a bum bag. The group, all dressed in similar clothing, then made off in the direction of the Rodwell Trail.

The victim sustained several facial injuries and was later treated in hospital.

Police Constable Christopher Windows, of Weymouth police, said: “We are carrying out a detailed investigation into this assault and I am keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone with information that might assist our enquiries.

“I am particularly keen to speak to members of the group who were present during the incident.

“Finally, I would also urge any residents in the vicinity with home CCTV or doorbell cameras, as well as motorists who were driving in the area and have dashcam fitted, to please check their footage and see if they have captured anything of relevance.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240025946. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
