Police have released CCTV footage of the moment an autistic teenager was chased before being slashed across his neck, narrowly missing his artery.
The 16-year old victim was walking alone to a local youth centre around 7:20pm on Wednesday June 4th when he was attacked.
He was suddenly approached by three men, and one of them asked him 'What he was looking at?'
Feeling freighted, the teenager ran away but was chased the short distance along Regency Street, close to the junction with Causton Street in Westminster.
