Officers have released a CCTV image in a bid to trace the youths who may have witnessed the incident or could have been involved.
The 15-year-old victim was waiting for his dad outside Dudley Zoo at around 7pm on Tuesday, February 19 when a group of seven young people approached him.

Luckily the lad was spotted by his dad who arrived to pick him up.
