Teen assaulted in Worthing street

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was chased down a Worthing road and then beaten by three men on Tuesday (December 27).

At around 11.05pm, the Worthing teen was in Broadwater Road when he was chased by a gang of three men. He managed to hide in a garden in Beaumont Road for a few minutes before the gang found him and punched him in the head several times.

The boy suffered only superficial cuts and bruises. The men are described as white, and wearing all black clothing. One was also wearing a black hat.

Nothing was stolen and the boy did not require hospital treatment.

PC Sarah Masters said: “We are still in the process of establishing the motive for this incident. If anyone saw what happened or has any other information please us via 101 quoting serial number 1474 of 27/12.”
