Assault in Haverhill Jubilee Walk and High Street sees boys, 12 and 13, punched and slapped by two men

Two teenage boys were punched and slapped by two men, with one of them also being hit with a van, in Haverhill earlier this month.

The incident took place on Saturday April 1 between 3.30pm and 4pm when one boy, 12, was punched in the head five times on Jubilee Walk by an unknown man which caused a lump above his eyebrow.

The offender then smashed the victim's phone on the floor, and shortly after hit the victim with his van in the bus station car park, causing him to fall to the ground with cuts to his knuckles and pain in his leg.
