Bury St Edmunds: Police appeal for information following attack on teenager

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has been the victim of an unprovoked attack in Bury St Edmunds.

Police are appealing for information following the assault in Tayfen Road at about 10.20pm last Friday.

Two other men led the older man away and they left the scene in a dark BMW.

The man is described as white, with a skinny build, 6ft tall, with short dark hair and stubble. He was wearing a short-sleeved white t-shirt and blue denim jeans.

One of the other men is described as having a broad build, about 5ft 9ins tall, with short dark hair and aged about 23 to 24. He was wearing a black short-sleeved top and dark blue jeans.

The third man was aged about 50 and had white or grey hair with a short beard. He was wearing a white coloured woolly hat, a white jacket and dark coloured jeans.
