A number of people who stopped to help a teenage boy in Normanton, Derby, are being urged to come forward.
It is in connection with reports a group of young people assaulted and tried to steal a bicycle from the boy in Normanton Park.
At around 8pm on Monday 9 May the 13-year-old was near to the football pitches when he was approached by a group of older boys or young men.
As the boy tried to leave the pitches, he was surrounded by group, and they demanded that they give him their bike.
He refused, and was allegedly punched and kicked, but a number of people who were passing by stopped to help the boy and the group ran away.
The boy attended hospital and suffered bruising and swelling to his face, neck and back.
We would like to hear from anyone in the area at the time, and in particular the members of the public who stopped to help.
