Police in Cheltenham are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was assaulted in Benhall Park last night (Monday).
Officers were called to the park shortly after 7.30pm after it was reported that an altercation had taken place between a group of around 20 teenagers.
It was reported that one of the teenagers was assaulted with a hammer after being chased by a boy which resulted in him needing hospital treatment. The boy has since been discharged from hospital.
This took place near to the Cloddymore Bridge and a 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the incident after officers searched the area. He has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
