Police in Caterham are appealing for information after an 11-year-old boy was beaten-up by a group on his way home from school.

The victim was walking along Whyteleafe Road near a red letter box at around 3.45pm last Thursday when he realised he was being followed by three boys, who verbally abused him, before pushing, punching and kicking him.

He was taken to hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries, including cuts and bruises.

Police have carried out enquiries, reviewing CCTV and speaking to neighbours door-to-door, but have not yet identified the three boys responsible.

If you saw what happened or you have any information which could help, contact police on 101, quoting crime reference number PR/45190099736.
