A MAN in his 50s was punched in the head during an unprovoked attack by two teenagers in St John's.

The assault happened as the victim was walking along the Bull Ring outside the Bush Inn between 8.30pm and 8pm on Thursday, May 31.

He was approached by two teenage boys who threw a drink at him, kicked his shopping bags and verbally abused him before punching him several times.

The victim says he retaliated in self defence by exchanging blows with the youths.

PC Mark Slade, from Worcester police station who is investigating the incident, said: "This is a completely unprovoked attack which both frightened and worried the victim. There were people outside the Bush Inn at the time of the incident who may have seen the assault take place and I would urge anyone who saw what happened to get in touch."

The teenagers are described as white, aged between 15 and 18, with one being taller than the other. The smaller of the two was stocky and both were carrying green drinks bottles at the time.

Anyone with information can call PC Slade on 0300 333 3000 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
