A member of the public is believed to have helped a teenage boy who was assaulted near a Leicester park.
Officers are keen to speak to the man after it is understood he stopped near the incident which happened just off Braunstone Park, in Gooding Avenue opposite Camville Road, at around 8.45pm on Tuesday 10 April.
Police previously appealed for information after a group of people approached a 15-year-old boy. The boy was assaulted and sustained a number of injuries. He was treated at hospital and has since been discharged.
The man, who is believed to have helped stop the incident, is described as white and of a muscular build.
Police Constable Gemma Stevens said: “We understand this man stopped near to the incident and potentially assisted. We are really keen to speak to him as we think he may have vital information which could help this investigation.
“If it is you, or you know who this may be, please get in touch.”
Enquiries are continuing into the incident.
Two 16-year-old boys, both from Leicester, have been arrested on suspicion of assault and have since been released under investigation.
PC Stevens added: “We are also still appealing to anyone who was in the area or who has any information to make contact. Please think back to if you were in the area on that evening – or as to whether you have any CCTV or dashcam footage which may assist us.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call 101 quoting incident 18000161777.
