A young boy was knocked unconscious when he was attacked by a stranger in a Northampton fast food restaurant.

The 14-year-old was in the Sixfields branch of McDonald’s between 5pm and 6pm on Sunday, December 28, when he accidentally bumped into a young girl and knocked her over.

In retaliation, the girl’s father punched the boy, knocking him unconscious and leaving him with a swollen nose, bruised eye, blurred vision and a bump on the back of the head.

The man was white, in his mid to late 20s and between 6ft 1in and 6ft 2in.

He had slightly tanned skin, short black hair and stubble. He was wearing jeans, trainers and either a grey or a blue hoodie.

Witnesses should call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
