We’re appealing for witnesses to an assault which took place on Clarence Esplanade, Southsea.
Between midnight and approximately 1.45am this morning (Saturday 15 July), an altercation occurred between a 17-year-old boy and a group of people next to a car parked in Clarence Esplanade.
The boy was subsequently assaulted by the group. He sustained a fractured eye socket and required stitches to his face and head.
The group were all described as black males, with one member of the group described as being around 16-18 years-old, wearing a puffer style jacket and wearing a durag on his head.
