We are appealing for witnesses after a teenage boy was assaulted in Basingstoke on Thursday night (August 25).
The incident happened at the War Memorial Park between 5.30pm and 6pm.
It was reported the boy had been approached by a group in the McDonald's restaurant in the town centre, and an argument had taken place.
When in the park, the boy was assaulted, suffering facial injuries.
