Police are on the look-out for four males who left a teenager with facial injuries after an attack and attempted robbery earlier this week.

Between 8.30pm and 9pm on Monday, a boy aged in his late teens was approached by four males while walking along Sheffield Road in Wymondham and attacked.

One of the suspects grabbed the teen and searched his pockets before assaulting him, leaving him with minor injuries to his face.

The youngster was then able to scramble free and escape with all of his belongings in tact, with the men believed to have been travelling in a dark blue Vauxhall hatchback with tinted rear wondows.
