Two men were injured when their car was attacked by a gang in Leicester.

The two victims, aged 32 and 36, were in a Volkswagen Passat in Canon Street, near Melton Road, on Sunday evening when the group damaged the vehicle.

When they tried to confront the culprits, both were assaulted.

The car then suffered further "substantial" damage before the gang fled. The men suffered "slight" injuries but police said they were left distressed by what happened.

The suspects were last seen running off along Doncaster Road towards Catherine Street.

Officers have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
