Three teenagers were attacked by a group of around 10 other boys at The Rye in High Wycombe and had their belongings stolen.

The three teen boys were at the popular High Wycombe park on Saturday, September 11, when they were surrounded by a group of around 10 other boys near the goalposts.

One boy, who is 15, was grabbed by the hair and punched in the face. A black iPhone 11, earphones, a charger and a speaker were stolen.

The attackers are described as being male, aged between 14 and 16.

Three boys - one aged 14 and two aged 15 - were arrested and have been released on police bail.

Police initially said the incident happened back in July, but have since revealed it actually happened last weekend. 

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Emily Sendall, based at Slough police station, said: “I am appealing to anyone who may have witnessed, or has information about this incident, to please come forward.

“Anyone with information can contact police by calling 101 or making a report online, quoting reference 43210409538.

“Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The attack happened on the same day another teenager was assaulted in High Wycombe. 

There is no suggestion at this stage that the two incidents are linked, but a 13-year-old boy who was with three friends was cornered and attacked by a group of boys aged between 14 and 16 in the Swan Theatre car park on September 11.

The boy was repeatedly punched and kicked while he was on the floor. Two 15-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy, all from High Wycombe, were arrested on suspicion of assault on September 12 and have since been released on police bail until October 8 while investigations continue.
