The male in his teens was waiting outside a friend’s house for a lift when he was approached by another male who started to punch the teen.
The teen received numerous punches to the head and face which resulted in severe bruising and swelling.
After the attack, the teen was brought to St Luke’s Hospital to receive medical attention.
