Teenager suffers broken jaw following Co. Antrim train station attack

Police are looking for witnesses.

A 16 year old boy has been hospitalised after he was allegedly attacked by a group of youths at an Antrim train station.

The teenager was left with a broken jaw after a group of up to 10 young people attacked him to the point of unconsciousness while he was awaiting a train.

The incident occurred on Saturday last week when police were called over an attack at Whiteabbey.

The police report says he sustained a broken jaw that needed hospital treatment.

A statement was released by police in Northern Ireland on Thursday appealing for the public to help.

Detective Sergeant Lyttle said: “Detectives are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time, and may have witnessed this incident, or who has any information which could assist us with our enquiries, to call 101 quoting reference number 1117 of 23/08/21.”
