Two teenagers arrested over racial attack at Wolverhampton park

We have arrested two teenagers tonight (Monday) following reports of a racial attack on a family at a park on Park Road West, Wolverhampton on Saturday evening.

We understand this incident has caused concern within the community and we want to reassure everyone that we take such matters extremely seriously.

As a result of our enquiries two boys, aged 15 and 17, were arrested at around 9.30pm this evening from an address in Wolverhampton on suspicion of a racially aggravated assault. They remain in police custody to be questioned in due course.

We are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident although our investigations are continuing and we'd appeal for any witnesses to the incident to get in contact.

We are also aware of a video of the incident circulating on social media and again ask that people do not continue to share this, as it may cause further upset to the family involved.

If you have any information about the incident and not yet spoken with officers please contact us via live chat at west-midlands.police.uk, or call 101, quoting log number 3816 of 5 June.
