5:35pm Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a 15-year-old boy was left with a broken cheek after being punched on the Trans Pennine trail.
The teenager was walking with his brother when a group of men on bikes cycled past.
Police say one man veered from the group, punching the victim in the face, causing a fracture.
The incident happened at 3pm on Wednesday, August 7, on the trail between Forrest Way and Fiddlers Ferry.
The men are described as white, aged in their late teens and wearing dark clothing.
One of the group spoke with a Warrington accent.
PC Alison Edwards said: "This would appear to be an unprovoked attack, which has left the victim with facial injuries, which will require further treatment.
"We take any incidents of this nature seriously and are trying to piece together as much information as we can in a bid to trace those responsible.
"The incident took place mid afternoon when it was still light and we would urge anyone who may have been in that area around that time and has seen anything significant to contact us.”
Anyone with any information is urged to call Cheshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 609 of 7 August.
