A teenager's arm was set on fire as he walked through a park in Hertfordshire.
The 17-year-old was approached by three young men at Hartham Common in Hertford, close to the children's play area, between 6.45pm and 7.20pm on Monday, July 24.
They sprayed a substance - thought to be deodorant - on his arm before using a cigarette lighter to ignite it. The victim quickly extinguished the flame.
“This was an understandably frightening experience for the victim, who luckily is not seriously hurt.
"This attack could have had a very different outcome and the victim could have suffered life-changing injuries."
The three men were between 5ft 2in and 5ft 4in tall and were all wearing dark-coloured hoodies.
