POLICE are appealing for witnesses after two boys were assaulted as they walked to the train station in Ely from school.
The 14-year-old boys finished school at 4.30pm on Monday (January 14), met friends and walked to the train station.
At Barton Square they were approached by a group of youths who started shouting at the victim and his friends.
They then followed the boys before punching victims in the head and running off.
Another assault happened just before, on a 17-year-old boy in the King’s School grounds. He was not seriously injured and it is being linked to the later incident.
