Group violently attack boy, 13, for £20 and phone in Long Sutton

The vicious attack continued even after the boy fled to a shop

Update: Police said they believe they have now identified the people pictured in the images previously released by the force.

Police have released CCTV images of men they’re searching for in connection with the persistent and violent robbery of a 13-year-old boy in Long Sutton.

An iPhone and £20 was stolen from the boy, who was viciously attacked by a large group on Bull Lane on September 30 at around 8pm.

He was beaten by several young men and was punched and kicked while on the floor, before he managed to flee to a nearby takeaway on the High Street.

The group chased after him and attacked him inside the shop.

A passer-by managed to get the victim’s iPhone back for him, but it was snapped in half.

One of the men involved has been described as white, of small build and pale complexion.

He had short brown wavy hair with shaved sides and was wearing a black t-shirt and jeans.

Another man, also white, also of small build with pale complexion, is thought to be involved.

He has short to medium ginger hair, slicked back, and no facial hair.

He was wearing a grey two-toned long sleeve jumper with black Nike branding on the front. He was wearing blue jeans.

Lincolnshire Police said they believe those pictured can help with their investigation.
