A gang assaulted and spat at people as they tried to steal alcohol from a sports club in Welwyn Garden City.

A Herts Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called at 8.45pm on Saturday, October 13, to reports of a group of youths attempting to access a private function at the cricket club in King George V Playing Fields, Welwyn Garden City.

“It was reported that they were attempting to steal alcohol and one of them was spitting at people.

“One of them headbutted a 17-year-old boy before also making a racist comment.”

The offender is described as a tall white male, wearing a grey hoody and blue jeans.

The group then made off in the direction of Woodhall shops and officers searched the area but they were not located.

Police are investigating the assault and anyone who has information should contact Hertfordshire Constabulary on the non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference 41/46033/18.
