A teenager was rushed to hospital after being assaulted by a gang of men in a kebab shop during what police described as a ‘targeted’ attack.

The 18-year-old victim was in Mediterranean Kebab House in Cambridge Street, Aylesbury at about 1.25am on Saturday when he was approached by three black men and then assaulted him.

He sustained puncture wounds to his legs and was treated at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. He has since been discharged.

Police have not provided any further description of what happened during the attack, but are treating it as an incident of grievous bodily harm (GBH).

No further descriptions of the culprits are available at this stage of the investigation and no arrests have yet been made.

Investigating officer, Det Insp Brendan Murray said: “I would especially appeal to anyone who saw the incident itself or witnessed the offenders enter or exit the kebab shop to contact the police immediately. Anyone with any information, no matter how insignificant should call 101.

“I can reassure members of the public that Thames Valley Police is conducting a thorough investigation into the offence.”

“We are at an early stage in our investigation but I would like to assure the people of Aylesbury that we believe this is an isolated incident and the victim was targeted. This incident does not represent a threat to the peaceful community of our town.”

Earlier today part of Cambridge Street was closed as police conducted a scene watch, but it has now reopened.
