Detective Sergeant Dan Robberts, from the Leicestershire Police’s complex investigation team (CIT), said: “This incident happened in the city centre, close to the bus station. While we’ve spoken to a number of people already, I’m appealing for anyone who can help but has not yet spoken to police to come forward.

“I’m keen to speak to anyone who might’ve filmed anything on their mobile phone or who saw a group of teenage boys in the area. Any details you’re able to provide, no matter how insignificant you think they are, could help.”
