Students Wounded By Gang Of Youths

Police are hunting a gang of youths who set upon two Coventry University students in separate attacks early yesterday morning.

In the first incident in Raglan Street in Hillfields a 23-year-old was set upon by about 15 youths aged between 17 and 18 at 2.15am.

He was punched, hit with a bottle, kicked while on the ground and knocked unconscious in what is thought to be an unprovoked attack.

The student was taken to Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital and received 15 stitches.

Minutes later in an unconnected attack in the same street another student, aged 19, was set upon by a group believed to be the same gang.

He was hit in the face and needed 50 stitches at hospital.

DC Bill Fleet appealed to any witnesses to either attack to call police on 024 7653 9010.
