13-year-olds arrested following vicious assault video
Police have this afternoon arrested three 13-year-old boys on suspicion of assault following a video which was shared on social media sites earlier today.
A young kid with a beanie hat was filmed punching and kicking the 12-year-old as he pleaded for help.
The victim managed to escape by jumping into a garden after being chased and banged on a window for help but no-one answered.
He was then caught by one 13-year-old, thrown to the floor and kicked hard multiple times in the head and back.
The boys, who are from the Heaton area of Bradford, remain in custody at this time.
Police have also spoken to the family of the 12-year-old victim, who have confirmed he is safe and well.
Enquiries into this matter are continuing.
Detective Chief Inspector Terry Long, of Bradford District Police, said: “I would like to thank the public for bringing this incident to our attention, and would like to reassure them that any similar reports will be dealt with positively.”
