Police used the force helicopter in their search for a boy in Hatfield who was wanted in connection with an assault today.

A Herts Police spokeswoman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “Police were called at 9.55am today to reports of a 17-year-old boy in Bishops Rise who had breached his bail conditions and assaulted a teenage girl by pushing her.

“The police helicopter was deployed to help trace the offender but he was not located.

“Enquiries are ongoing and police are investigating the assault.

“Anyone who saw what happened, or has useful information, should contact Hertfordshire Constabulary on the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/44864/18.”
