Manhunt launched after teenager left fighting for his life in Street attack on the Isle of Sheppey

Police in Kent on the Isle of Sheppey have  launched a manhunt after a Sixteen year old Sheerness college student has been airlifted to Kings College hospital in London.

The boy who was riding down the High Street just before 12pm  on Wednesday was attacked and punched from his bike as he was pulling a wheelie we can reveal.

The man than stamped on the boy’s  head a number of times leaving him with head injuries before making off in a vehicle.

The wicked attack was captured on nearby shop CCTV and this is being reviewed by Police after the gutless adult man who is being described as fat ran from the scene to a car

Dad of the Teen involved urges whoever is involved to hand themselves into the Police

Parents of the boy involved first found out about the wicked unprovoked attack after their older son witnessed the attack unfolding in the busy town’s High street. I thought  he was at College said the Dad of two.

 

The dad who we are choosing not to name has urged the person involved to hand themselves and deal with matter like a man. We know who you are and they (The Police) will be coming for you.

The local mechanic who himself was a victim of an attack 12 years ago that left him with plates in his head said that we now just have to wait and hope he pulls through.

They airlifted him with all the tubed in his body. They put him to sleep before airlifting him to the hospital . I managed to see him leave in the air ambulance.

A police spokesman said: “One person has been taken to a London hospital by air ambulance with injuries and officers remain at the scene carrying out enquiries into the circumstances of the incident a number of witnesses have come forward and we are working with those to progress a very fluid investigation”

The spokesman said that arrests have been made and scene of crime investigators had been called to the scene that remains in the High Street
