We’re appealing for witnesses to come forward following a racially aggravated assault in Bradley Stoke on Thursday 20 May.

The victim, a 12-year-old boy, was walking alone on Saxon Way between 3.50 and 4.10pm when he was approached by a group of four men/teenagers who used racially abusive language towards him.
