We were called yesterday (Monday 6 September) at 11am to reports of an assault at Brinsworth Academy, Rotherham.

It is reported that the victim, a boy in his teens, was attacked by two boys within the school grounds.

Two 16-year-old boys from Rotherham have been arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. They remain in police custody and an investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Boulter said: "This was a particularly nasty attack that left the victim with serious injuries.

"I'm aware the incident was filmed and has been shared on social media. I would urge members of the public not to share this footage as it is incredibly distressing for the victim and his family and could harm future legal proceedings."

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information that could assist with our enquiries, is asked to call 101. You can also report via our new online portal. The reference is: 14/137058/21.

Alternatively, you can stay completely anonymous by contacting the independent charity CrimeStoppers via their website Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111.
