Police in Banbury are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was urinated on and had food thrown at him by a gang of younger boys.

The incident happened between 12 and 3pm on Saturday 26th August at Hill View Park.

A 17-year-old boy who has autism, was on his scooter when three boys approached him and started insulting him.

They threw food and a can of drink at him which hit his head. One of the boys then climbed on a climbing frame above him and deliberately urinated on his scooter and on the victim’s leg.

The offenders are all approximately 13 to 16 years old.

The first offender, who urinated on the victim, is the tallest of the three boys, has short hair, and was wearing a green top and brown trousers.

The second offender has short blond hair, was wearing glasses and three-quarter length Batman trousers and a top which had an outline of a face on it.

The third offender was wearing a white top and three-quarter length blue trousers.

“Although the victim was unhurt, this incident was very distressing for him and is being treated extremely seriously. I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or who recognises the description of the offenders. If you have details which could assist the investigation please speak to officers.”
