Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses after two boys were assaulted on Wednesday 31 August at 12.30pm.
The incident took part on the footpath which runs along the end of Clydesdale Close in Ramleaze, Shaw, when a five and an eight year old boy were assaulted by a teenager who took a push bike from them. He was part of a group of three teenage boys aged around 13-years-old.
An unknown member of the public intervened and the main offender ran off leaving the bike behind. Both children were unhurt but have been left very shaken by the incident.
PC Ben Cox said: “I would like to speak to the man who helped, please come forward. Also, I would like to speak to anyone else who may have witnessed this incident.
“The main suspect is described as white, around 13-years-old, of medium build with short blonde hair. He was wearing a green/blue hooded top and jeans.”
If you can help with our enquiries please contact PC Ben Cox at Gablecross Police Station on 101 or anonymously, via Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111.
