The incident is reported to have taken place in Southgate, in Sleaford on Tuesday (January 30) at around 4.15pm.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesman said: “It was reported that there was a group of between 10 to 20 people at the incident, and the victim was pushed to the ground and assaulted.

“This took place at a busy time of day and we believe that there will have been a lot of members of the public in the area who may have seen or heard something, or may have captured the incident on camera, who we have not yet spoken with.
