The attackers reportedly assaulted the teenager while he was on the floor, before he was able to run into a nearby field.

He was chased and assaulted again, which police believe was an attempt to steal his phone, before the suspects fled the scene in a car.

Police have not confirmed yet if the phone or bike was stolen in the attack, which happened on Thursday, November 15, at about 8.35pm.  

In a statement, the force said: 'The car they are reported to have left the scene in is described as being a dark blue Honda, possibly from 2003-2005.
