'Unprovoked attack' on teenage boy in Chichester
Three boys have been arrested after a student was 'attacked' inÂ Chichester yesterday afternoon (Tuesday), according to police.
Police said officers were called to Avenue de Chartres where a 17-year-old boy had been 'assaulted' between the skate park and Chichester College just after 1.40pm.
A police spokesman said: "The boy had suffered cuts and bruises to his face after being attacked by a group of boys and was treated in hospital."
PC Tom Van Der Wee said police believe a 'number of people' witnessed the assault on 'a busy road at a busy time of day'.
He added: "We believe about six boys were involved in this unprovoked attack and we are keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened."
