Blackpool School Boy Set Alight By Thugs Who Asked ‘Do You Want To See A Magic Trick?’

A twelve-year-old boy was significantly burnt when thugs set his t-shirt on fire with a cigarette lighter. The young boy was with a friend in George Bancroft Park, off Seasiders Way in Blackpool, when two older males approached and asked if he wanted to see a magic trick.

They then used a cigarette lighter to set his t-shirt alight.

The first suspect is described as tall, wearing a black hoody with the hood pulled up, a black mask, black trousers with pockets on the legs and black leather gloves. The second offender is described as smaller, also wearing a black hoody with the hood up, black joggers, fingerless gloves. He covered his face with his hand.

The incident happened between 8 p.m.- 9 p.m. on Tuesday night (1st November) and Lancashire Police are asking for any witnesses to come forward. To reassure residents they have also said patrols have been increased in the area in response to the incident.

Detective Inspector Kirsty Wyatt, of Blackpool CID, said: ‘This was a horrific assault on a young boy and he has suffered some really significant burn injuries which will need on-going hospital treatment. I would appeal to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at around the time of the attack to come forward and speak to us. We will have extra patrols in the area over the coming days and I would urge anyone with information or concerns to speak to an officer.’

Anyone with information can also call 101 quoting log 1344 of November 1st. Alternatively contact independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

  1. Incidents like this young boy maybe related to gang stalking g or the precursor. Please read what they did to me in Australia they gave me isis myasis. The police were involved they have to stop sabotaging and stalking me. If anyone can help who is on politics or policing please help me. I’m not a drug dealer I don’t know why they keep doing it.
    Welcome to page. I started my instagram page dexybundaberg after I realised the gunfire was real in Gin Gin. I started it after realising that those I had trusted were possibly my torturers. To cut along story short please read my posts please read the information on ” gang stalking” th re gang stalking I experienced in Gin Gin may have killed me. The nature of gang stalking is its very covert it’s hard to explain without sounding like a lunatic . By the time you get through you will be probably dead or near to it. It costs money to run that’s why I escort. It also allows me to meet a wide range of good people from all walks of life . These people being a lifeline that they don’t even realise they are. I was given myasis in Bundaberg. I cleared it up at a friend’s when I stayed with his family. So by the process of elimination we came to the conclusion I was funked with. They did it as I slept rough in the Bundaberg public parks . They did when I slept at their homes trusting they were not a perpetrator how wrong I was. That one friend gave me the knowledge as difficult as it is to say I’m am being funked with again. I ended up in mackay. I met another like myself. For the networks in macksy this must be a shock. It’s not the gear someone is funking with us both in mackay. Please read my story . Please donate via PAYID 0491910070 AS I can’t always escort due to the nature of being stalked. In return I can give you a sexy phone vid for those moments alone.
