We are appealing for the public’s help after an 11-year-old boy was assaulted and racially abused in the Hengrove area of Bristol.
The boy was punched multiple times while walking on Hengrove Lane, near the Walsh Avenue park, at approximately 3.40pm on Wednesday 18 October.
Several racial comments were made by the four offenders, believed to be teenagers, all of whom were white, wearing dark clothing, balaclavas and riding bikes.
PC Olivia Fudge said: “This is a shocking incident and it’s had a significant impact on the victim.
“There is no room for hate in our communities and we fully understand the impact these crimes can have.
“We take these incidents incredibly seriously and are working hard to track down the people responsible.”
