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.
Anybody with information about the gang, who struck at 10.30pm, should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
