Police appeal for witnesses after boys assaulted in Farnborough

Were you in the area near to Farnborough Rugby Club and Shelley Rise around 1am on Friday, April 25?

Detectives are investigating an incident where three teenage boys - a 15-year-old from Surrey and two 17-year-olds from Surrey - were attacked with baseball bats by a group of up to eight teenage boys.

It is believed that the victims had met a group of girls at Farnborough Train Station earlier that night and were then confronted by this group of teenage boys near to the playing fields at the rugby club, who assaulted them. One boy also had cash and a bank card stolen from him and another had a bag containing a tablet device stolen.

The victims sustained numerous injuries, including broken bones, and all received hospital treatment.

Detective Constable Sam Adcock said:

"Were you in the area at the time? Did you see groups of teenage boys or any altercation?


It is believed these boys are all known to each other, so I would like to reassure the local community that this is an isolated incident, and there is no wider threat to their safety.

I'd like to hear from anyone who has information which may assist this investigation."


A 15-year-old boy from Farnborough has been arrested in connection with this incident and is currently in police custody.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Aldershot CID on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
