A teenager has told how he was subjected to a brutal attack by a SEVEN men after he refused to hand over his mobile phone and cash.

The 17-year-old was approached by the gang while he was walking home on the redway next to Stantonbury Campus Astroturf on Saturday night.

“They asked for my phone and a cash and I said no. Then they all started punching me around the head.

“It was horrible. There was no way I could defend myself against seven men, all thumping me. All I could do was put my hands up and try to protect my face.”

The attack lasted for over a minute but felt like hours, said the victim,

“When they finally stopped thumping me I ran off and got a taxi home,” he said.

He went to hospital to be treated for a black eye and split lip.
