Police are seeking witnesses after two teenagers were assaulted in Lowestoft.
Trouble flared in an incident that took place at the children's play area in Fen Park, Kirkley
A group of three teenagers, two boys and a girl, were approached by three boys – also thought to be teenagers – at the park in Southwell Road about 4.45pm on Saturday, March 4.
One teenager accused the group of laughing at him and without warning punched one of the boys in the face a number of times. The victim ran off before the attacker then assaulted the other boy in the group before leaving the scene.
The girl in the group had left during the incident, but she returned with a woman. The boys who were with the attacker then also left the area.
