A teenage boy was chased and attacked by a large group of violent young men whilst visiting the Stray Fair in May.

The 18-year-old was walking towards the fair from the car park to meet his girlfriend when he was approached by the group of young men.

The group of youths chased the 18-year-old back to his car before causing extensive damage to the vehicle by punching and kicking it.

One of the males then entered the teenager's car and began punching him. The teenager suffered injuries to his nose, cheek and hand in the attack.

Four males have been arrested in connection with this and have been bailed pending further inquiries.

Police are conducting enquiries into the attack and have requested the public's assistance to help determine the full circumstances of the incident.

In particular, police are appealing for information about the group who attacked the male and his vehicle.
