A 16-year-old boy was punched in the face and kicked while he lay on the floor by a gang of six men in the city yesterday evening.
The victim was walking with his girlfriend in Midsummer Boulevard at about 6.30pm near The Point kiosk.
One of the men pushed the victim before punching him in the face, but as the teenager tried to get away he was pushed again, before being kicked while he was on the floor.
The offenders then made off on foot.
One of the offenders is white with a tan, in his early twenties short black spiky hair and a thin moustache.
He was wearing dark blue tight fitting jeans and a plain black round necked T-shirt.
Another of the offenders is also white, about 6ft tall, with a muscular build and short black hair.
He was wearing a black T-shirt with a white pattern and blue jeans.
The victim sustained a laceration to the bridge of his nose and bruises to the forehead, but did not require hospital treatment.
