West Midlands Police is appealing for information after a man was assaulted and robbed in Birmingham yesterday (10 Feb).
An 18-year-old man was punched, kicked and hit with a glass bottle by a large group of teenagers as he was waiting at a bus stop on Washwood Heath Road, in Ward End at 3.45pm.
His phone and cap were stolen and his girlfriend was kicked in the back as she tried to intervene.
Fortunately members of the public helped the pair and the group then fled the scene.
The man was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries to his head.
Detective Sergeant Tom Lyons said, “This was a nasty unprovoked attack on a man who was innocently waiting for his bus.
“We believe the offenders are all around 16-17 years old, Asian, and one of them had curly hair and was wearing a blue coat.
“This was a large group of people and would likely have caused some disturbance to passers-by, so we are appealing for anyone who saw the group or has any information to contact us.”
