The teenager had been approached by two male youths at some point between 6.30pm and 7pm on Monday, February 19 in Matlock Dale, before they took his bandanna black and white scarf without force.
The two youths then kicked the victim’s BMX bike causing him to fall off, and then punched the boy in the face, causing an injury to the bridge of his nose.
The victim fled the scene, leaving his bike behind. The bike was not stolen and was later recovered.
