Teenage boy reportedly ‘pushed down an escalator’ in Watford

Police investigating an assault in Watford in which a teenage boy was allegedly pushed down an escalator, are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

It was reported that a 16-year-old boy was pushed down an escalator in Atria, Watford, following an altercation with two other males, causing him to sustain multiple cuts to various parts of his body.

Herts police have said they are particularly keen to trace a female who may have seen what happened.

The incident occurred outside Next, on the upper floor of the Atria shopping centre in Watford Town Centre, at around 1pm on Friday 14 January.

PC Jessica Tanseli, who is investigating, said: “Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish the circumstances around what happened, including reviewing CCTV footage. As part of our investigation, we’d also like to hear from anyone who saw the incident, or the events leading up to it.

“We’re particularly keen to hear from a dark-haired female who was in the area at the time, as she may have vital information. She was wearing dark clothing and carrying a bag. If this was you, please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to please contact PC Tanseli via email.
