CHILDREN in Kendal have allegedly been attacked twice in the same location while playing during their Easter break.

A ten-year-old girl was playing in trees between Briarrigg and houses in Burneside Road when they were approached by three teenage males at about 5.45pm on Thursday (April 10).

The ‘small’ child fell over after she was allegedly struck on the leg with a stick by a male described as being in his mid teens, wearing a grey hoody with a number on the back, blue or grey tracksuit bottoms and white Nike trainers.


A seven-year-old boy was playing in the same location yesterday (April 11) at about 10.30am when a group of five teenage males approached.

He was also allegedly struck on the leg, by a male described as being tall, in his mid teens, wearing a blue hoody, tracksuit bottoms and black and grey trainers.

Neither children were seriously injured.

Cumbria Police are appealing for anyone with information to call non-emergency 101 and ask for PC Martin or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
