Police investigate assault


Two teenagers were attacked by a group of men after a car crash in Saffron Walden.

A Volkswagen Polo containing four people was travelling close to a roundabout in Little Walden Road at around 11pm on Wednesday, September 20, when a silver Ford reversed into them.

As the Volkswagen reversed, one its tyres blew.

Then a group of men came over and kicked and punched the vehicle, causing damage to the body work.

The group then pulled the driver and front seat passenger – aged 17 and 16 – out of the vehicle and assaulted them.

One victim suffered a cut to his head while the other was punched in the face.

Essex Police is now appealing for information about the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Gemma Edwards from the Uttlesford policing team on 101.

Alternatively people can give information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
