Police have released CCTV footage in an attempt to trace three males who assaulted an autistic teenager in Westminster.

At approximately 19:20hrs on Wednesday, 4 June a 16-year-old boy was attacked on Regency Street close to the junction with Causton Street having been chased a short distance along the road.

During the attack the victim sustained a slash wound to the side of his neck. He attended hospital for treatment and was discharged a short time later.

The suspects are described as Hispanic and/or black.

Detectives from Westminster are investigating and are yet to discover a motive for the attack.

Detective Constable Krishan Kapur, said: "This appears to have been a random attack on a teenager who was heading to meet friends at a local youth club. I would appeal to anyone who saw the assault to contact police. It is fortunate that the victim's injuries were not more severe as he was lashed across the neck."

Anyone with information is asked to call Westminster CID on 07500 766464 or via 101. To remain anonymous please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Show less
