Police are seeking a mystery victim of assault in Bognor.
Between about 4.30pm and 5.30pm on Monday 17 May in Linden Road, Bognor, the as yet unidentified victim, a boy described as white, aged 15-16, with light brown hair, wearing a red sports style jacket and jeans, was pushed and spat at by the suspects, a group of boys all aged between 13-16, wearing tracksuits and medical face masks.
A second victim, a 29-year-old man, became involved solely as a result of asking if this unidentified boy was okay, and was then attacked by the youths as a result, as the boy disappeared. Police are not aware at this stage of any injuries either of them sustained.
Police are asking the boy who was first assaulted to get in touch so that officers can establish a complete picture of what happened.
If you are that boy or if you know who he is, please contact Sussex Police online or by calling 101, quoting serial 1141 of 17/05.
Three boys, two aged 15 and one aged 17, were arrested on suspicion of affray and assault involving the two victims, assault on police and resisting arrest.
After being interviewed they were all charged with resisting arrest, assault on police, and breach of Community Protection Notices. The investigation into the attacks on the two victims continues.
