POLICE are probing a vicious attack on two teenage boys by three car loads of men in east Belfast.
Two teenage boys are recovering after being attacked by a group of men in Dundonald, east Belfast.
It happened as the 13-year-olds walked along the East Link Road on Saturday night.
A father of one of the victims – who wanted to remain anonymous – said three car loads of men pulled up and attacked them.
He said his son remembers being knocked to the ground and then kicked and punched.
“They got out of the car, about 10 of them, one of them came across in his face and said ‘I’ve been a boxer for 16 years'”, he said.
“Then one of the guys standing to the side of him punched him clean into the neck which put him down.
“Then he said he can’t remember how many, he just remembers people punching and kicking at him, that’s all he can remember.”
The police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.
