Gang of three punch youth during Nuneaton mugging

A 17-year-old was taken to hospital after being punched in the face by three males in Warwickshire.

After the assault, a fourth attacker held the youth and searched his pockets, stealing a small amount of cash, police said.

Two of the boy's friends were also attacked during the incident on Paul's Land, near Lutterworth Road, Nuneaton, on Saturday evening.

One attacker was about 16, with brown hair and was about 5ft 10ins tall.

This attacker was wearing a hat and a black Lacoste-style jacket with dark tracksuit bottoms with a gold stripe down the legs, a police spokeswoman added.
