A 15-YEAR-OLD boy suffered a double fracture to his jaw after he was attacked by a gang.

At about 2.30pm on Saturday, the boy was walking alone on the Redway in Emerson Valley. As he was between the Westcroft roundabout and the Mound, he was punched in the jaw from behind.

The victim instinctively reacted by punching the offender back in the face and he fell to the floor, the victim was then punched again in the jaw by a second man, which caused the victim to fall to the floor.

He then saw three men who began kicking him in the back, one of them reached over and tried to take his mobile phone out of his trouser pocket, he managed to fight them off and they all ran off towards Tattenhoe empty handed.

The victim attended Milton Keynes General Hospital. He was later transferred to Luton and Dunstable Hospital where he received surgery to his jaw, which was fractured in two places. He was discharged on Monday (18/7).

The victim describes his attackers as three white men, all aged about 17 to 20, about 6ft, and medium build. They were all wearing hooded tops with the hoods up and Arab-type scarves (Shemaghs) covering the lower part of their faces.

The first suspect was wearing a blue hooded top with a black and green scarf; the second suspect was wearing a lighter blue hooded top with a black and blue scarf; and the third was wearing a black hooded top also with a black and blue scarf.

Two of the men were wearing jeans and one was wearing track suit bottoms.

Detective Constable Reg Jones, said: “There was some kind of sports event occurring on the playing field that day and it was well attended.
