Forest Gate schoolboy injured in “unprovoked” metal pole attack
A 15-year-old boy had a tooth knocked out by a metal pole in an “unprovoked attack” by a gang of men on Thursday.
The teenager was crossing Doris Road, Forest Gate, around 3pm when a green-coloured car stopped sharply.
After an exchange of words between the boy and the driver, four or five Asian males got out of the car.
One of the men removed a metal pole from the boot and hit the boy across the head, leaving a gash wound and knocking a tooth out, before driving off towards Upton Lane.
The boy was discharged from hospital that day.
