Police have arrested three teenagers from Shenley and Borehamwood in connection with an assault that put a student in hospital.

At around 7.15pm on Tuesday May 29, a 17-year-old student from Shenley was approached by a group of seven or eight boys as he walked along Black Lion Hill towards the Porters Park Estate.

They started shouting abuse at him, and then left. Later they came back, and it is alleged they attacked him at a bus stop near the Black Lion pub.

A passer-by drove the attackers away, then called an ambulance for the student, who was treated at Barnet Hospital for a suspected broken jaw, a cut lip, bruising and a cigarette burn.

The three 16-year-old boys who the police have accused of carrying out the attack were released on police bail. Two are from Shenley, and the other has no fixed address, but is believed to come from the Borehamwood area.

*A man lost two front teeth after being punched at The Rhythm Room nightclub in Borehamwood's Shenley Road, just before midnight on Saturday.

The man was talking with girls at the nightclub when, in an apparently unprovoked attack, he was punched in the face by a man in his 30s, of medium build, wearing a blue Malibu shirt.

He was later treated at Barnet Hospital for bruises and his lost teeth.
