A 14-YEAR-OLD boy has been attacked by two boys while walking home from school in Carlisle.

The incident occurred at 4.10pm on Monday, December 3, on the corner of Parham Grove and Marks Avenue.

The teen was approached by two unknown boys who then punched him, causing bleeding to his nose and swelling to his cheek and jaw.

The first boy was about 14-years-old, 5ft 2 ins in height, with light brown hair shaved to the sides, of chubby build, a local accent, wearing a blue and red hoody with grey jogging bottoms and was riding a red bike.

The second boy was about 14-years-old, 5ft 6ins in height, with fluffy blonde hair, tall skinny build, wearing a grey hoody and grey jogging bottoms and was riding a green bike.

A Cumbria Police spokesman said: "We are looking for any witnesses to come forward who may have been in the area at that time.

"We also wish to speak to an unknown woman who may have spoken to the victim and possibly the driver of a Red Honda Civic who stopped at the scene."

Anyone with information about the incident should call PC Edwards-Clay on 101.
