We are appealing for information following a reported assault in St Helens on Friday 3 December.
At around 6.10pm we received a report that a 15-year-old male was assaulted on Ormskirk Street.
It was reported that he was chased from Daily Mirror newsagents on Westfield Street to Iceland on Ormskirk Street where he was kicked and punched by three males.

“Any information you hold could be vital to our enquiries so tell us what you know and we will take action.”
