A Lancashire teenager suffered a broken jaw after he was assaulted by three men who shouted homophobic abuse at him.
The 16-year-old boy was attacked as he walked with his sister in Nelson.
Lancashire Constabulary say the offenders were described as Asian. The assault took place in Netherfield Road in the town centre at about 9.30pm on Saturday, February 11. The victim was punched and kicked in the face before a passer-by intervened.
