Police appeal following serious St Albans assault
POLICE are appealing to the public to help them identify two people in connection with a recent attack in St Albans which has left a teenager with serious injuries.
CCTV images of the men were released today (Thursday) in the hope that they can be traced as part of the investigation into the assault in Sutton Road, St Albans, on Friday, May 13.
Between 10.30pm and 11pm, a 17-year-old boy from St Albans and his two friends were walking along the road before they were approached by a taxi. Its passengers started shouting abuse at the group before one of them got out and punched the teenager to the ground unconscious before getting back into the vehicle and driving off.
The 17-year-old was taken to QEII hospital in Welwyn Garden City for treatment and has since been transferred to Addenbrookes. He remains in hospital in a stable condition.
A police spokesperson said that they would like to speak to the two men pictured as they may have witnessed the assault or have vital information which would assist in the investigation.
