Appeal for witnesses following GBH incident

Police are appealing for witnesses following an incident of grievous bodily harm in High Wycombe.

At around 9.30pm on Sunday, the victim, a boy in his teens, was assaulted by a group of young men outside a mosque on Desborough Street at the junction with Oakridge Road.

The victim has sustained GBH-level injuries which required hospital treatment, but has since been discharged.

A 16 year old boy and a 17 year old boy, both from High Wycombe, have each been arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, public order and assault. They remain in custody at this stage.

Chief Inspector Robb Webb, Deputy LPA Commander for Aylesbury, said: “We are investigating this incident and are carrying out extensive enquiries into this concerning incident.

“We are undertaking a number of enquiries and reassurance patrols, so members of the public will see an increased police presence in the area.

“Although we are in the very early stages of our enquiries we have made two arrests and at this stage we are not treating this incident as a hate crime.

“We are appealing for anyone who may have seen this incident or who has dash-cam, doorbell or phone footage from the area around the time that it happened, to please get in touch.

“You can provide information by calling 101 or through our online pages, by quoting reference 43240137047.

“Or if you do not wish to speak to the police you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and they will take your information 100% anonymously.”
