Young Boy Set Upon By Gang In Park

A 12-year-old boy was attacked by a gang of children, some of whom were as young as seven, as he played in Coventry’s War Memorial Park.

The gang of five approached him at 12.40pm yesterday and asked if they could borrow his golf clubs.

They then hit him in the head and punched him several times before pinning him down and searching him.

The gang, who are white and aged between seven and 15, then took £3 from the lad before running off.

The boy, who was terrified by his ordeal, suffered swelling to his forehead. Any witnesses are urged to contact police on 024 7653 9030.
