Two 14-year-old boys were attacked by an older man while playing in the Edinburgh Playing Fields car park.

At around 5pm yesterday afternoon (Thursday) four boys were playing near to the football changing room in the car park of the playing fields in Churchill Avenue, Aylesbury opposite the Hampden garden shops.

They were approached by a man who started to argue with them before walking off.

He later returned and again started to argue with the boys, then punched two of them in the face.

The boys sustained cuts and bruises but did not require hospital treatment.

Investigating officer PC Samuel Bradley said: “We are appealing for witnesses to come forward after this attack on two teenage boys.

“The two boys were punched in the face, causing cuts and bruises, and one of the boys lost a tooth.

“The man is Asian, 18-19-years-old, with black short hair, and was wearing a black leather jacket, a black t-shirt and black tracksuit bottoms.

“He also has a white patch of skin near his right eyebrow, which might have been skin discolouration or a scab.

“We think this man was driving a silver car, which was parked in the car park at the time.

“I would particularly like to speak to a group of white and Asian men, with ages ranging from 12-18-years-old, who were nearby at the time of the incident and may have seen the offender.”
