Police have appealed for witnesses following an assault in Chudleigh at the weekend.

The incident happened on Sunday 2nd of October at Fore Street play park.

Posting on Social media, a spokesperson for Ashburton and Chudleigh policing area said:

“On Sunday afternoon at 4pm a 9 year old boy was kicked and punched by FOUR older boys causing some injury. The assault was serious enough for two adults to intervene and take the boy home.
Unfortunately we do not know who these adults are, however there is a possibility they are from Bovey Tracey.

“If you were one of the two adults, you did a great job and we would like to speak to you about what happened,”

Contact the police on 101 and quote CR/070136/16.
If anyone else was in the park at that time and saw anything can you also please make contact and quote the crime reference number.
