A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of causing life-changing injuries to a boy in Leyland.

The incident happened on October 10 at 4pm when the victim was buying sweets at the newsagents on Wigan Road.

He was approached by a stranger, unprovoked, who began to punch him in the mouth.

The boy suffered a fractured jaw as a result and has also lost several teeth.

The 17-year-old from Chorley has since been released by South Ribble Police pending further investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to email 8926@lancashire.pnn.police.uk or call police on 101, quoting log 1001 of October 10 2020.
