Two teenagers were hospitalised after being attacked by a gang of youths in Houghton Regis last week.
The assault took place between 2-2.40pm on Monday October 28 at the skate park in Tithe Farm Road.
The two victims were approached by a large group of
youths with one of the offenders asking if he could borrow a scooter.
The victim agreed, but when the offender returned the item, the group attacked the two victims by pushing them to the floor before punching and kicking them.
The offenders then fled and the victims alerted the police before being taken to hospital for treatment to cuts to the head and severe bruising.
While a number of youths were involved in the incident there were two main offenders.
The first was a white male, 13-14 years old, 5ft 2ins tall, slim build, with short brown hair and freckles.
The second was a mixed race male, around 15 years old, 5ft 7ins tall and of muscular build.
PC Lee-Anne Pogson, who is investigating the assault, is keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time of the attack, may have witnessed the assault or may have any information about the offenders.
