Fourth person arrested after ‘shocking’ Cleethorpes assaults
Three teenagers, two boys (aged 15 and 14) and a girl (aged 15), were arrested earlier today on suspicion of three counts of common assault and one count of racially aggravated assault.
Now, a 13-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the assualts.
All four remain in police custody whilst enquiries continue.
The three alleged assaults all took place on Sunday 16 January – two occurred on the Promenade and one on St Peter’s Avenue in Cleethorpes.
The racially aggravated assault is reported to have taken place on Wednesday 12 January at a business on Alexandra Road, Cleethorpes.
It is alleged that during one of the incidents, one of the suspects hit an elderly gentleman who tried defending himself.
The rest of the group are said to have ‘swarmed’ the elderly man before two security guards and witnesses came to the man’s aid.
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Humberside Police via the non-emergency 101 line quoting log 366 of 16 January.
