Two youths aged 15 arrested following assault on Stansted resident during night of anti-social behaviour
Two youths have been arrested by police on suspicion of common assault and criminal damage following reports of a group of teenagers on the rampage in Stansted earlier this month.
Essex Police confirmed on Monday (May 23) that two 15-year-olds had been released on bail until mid-June.
Their arrests follow a series of incidents in the village on May 7 when a gang of five girls and one boy assaulted a resident in Spencer Close who challenged them after they began kicking over flower pots in a communal garden.
The man, in his 40s, was struck in the face and pushed.
Trouble also flared at Crafton Green, where windows at Uttlesford Foodbank's depot were smashed, in Chapel Hill and at the King's Arms pub in Station Road.
The group was captured on CCTV around the village. Essex Police said at the time it was investigating the incidents and was "committed" to tackling anti-social behaviour.
