Police are appealing for information after an incident in Stockton where a schoolboy had to attend hospital after he was attacked and knocked unconscious by two other boys.
The 12-year-old was walking across the car park at Sainsburys onto Bishopton Road between 3.30pm and 3.45pm last Monday, 23rd January, when he was attacked from behind by two unknown males (also described as school age and wearing blue hoodies).
The boy describes being pulled to the ground in the bushes between the supermarket and Bishopton Road and having his arm and head stamped on, whereupon he briefly lost consciousness.
Staff from the store came across the boy and kindly assisted him, called police and contacted his parents. The boy then attended hospital to be checked over and he received treatment for a sprain to his wrist.
Enquiries are on-going and as officers know the area would have been busy at the time we would appeal for any witnesses, drivers with dash cam or anyone with private CCTV or doorbell footage to contact Cleveland Police on 101. Please quote ref 013778.
