Appeal For Witnesses After Assault In Belper

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a 16-year-old boy was assaulted in Belper.

Between 10pm and 10.30pm on Saturday, November 18, the boy was attacked on three separate occasions in the town centre by a number of men.

The first incident took place on Nottingham Road, the second on the Market Place and then a further altercation took place again on the Market Place.

It is understood that the attackers were known to the victim. He suffered a broken jaw and broken nose.

A member of the public is believed to have intervened in the first altercation on Nottingham Road and officers are keen for anyone who witnessed any of the altercations – or was in the area at the time – to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Thor Long on 101 quoting reference number 170000504547.

Alternatively, send him a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of the Derbyshire Constabulary website

You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
