Detectives are investigating an incident in Chellaston where a boy was assaulted.
The ambulance service called us at about 6.50pm last night (Wednesday 10 November) to report that a 13-year-old was injured at Chellaston Brickworks nature reserve, in Bensley Close.
The boy had suffered injuries to his arm and legs that were not life-threatening. He was taken to hospital for treatment.
We understand that he was approached by four youths all wearing balaclavas, who pushed him to the floor. One is described as being about 5ft 7ins tall and possibly mixed race. He wore a black hoody. The other three were of a similar height and wore black knee-length trench coats.
