A TEENAGE boy sustained facial injuries after he was assaulted in a Somerset town.

The 15-year-old, who was with friends at the time, needed dentistry treatment following the incident in Weston-super-Mare.

Police have issued CCTV images of two males as part of their investigation into the attack in the Mead Vale area of the town.

It happened in Nightingale Court on Monday, August 30, at around 7.35pm.

Officers are keen to identify the two males in the images in connection with their enquiries.

Both are described as white, in their late-teens or early-20s and wore dark tracksuits.

Male 1 is pictured wearing a dark cap, with a green and red marking on either side. He is said to be of a slim athletic build.

Male 2 is described as being of an average build.

Witnesses, or anyone with information about who the two males are, should call 101 and quote reference number 5221200594.
