Police have provided an update after videos emerged appearing to show a man being attacked near a school.

Parents have since contacted the Watford Observer voicing concern after reports of the "assault" opposite Croxley Danes School last week.

The force yesterday (September 25) confirmed no arrests have been made, but enquiries are continuing as “all investigative opportunities continue to be explored”.

“In the meantime, the involved parties have been offered words of advice, and safeguarding measures have been put in place,” a spokesperson added.

“Additionally, extra patrols have been put in place in the area to provide community reassurance.”

Videos of the incident, which happened after school last Wednesday (September 20), show a man being repeatedly punched and kneed by someone beside some shops.

The man, 22, is understood to have later gone to hospital and been told his nose was broken in three places.

A Croxley Danes School spokesperson previously said: “We are aware of an incident initially involving two adults and then one of our students that occurred off school property. 

“We are cooperating fully with the police as they conduct their investigation.

“The school takes such matters very seriously and is investigating according to its own policies and procedures.

“This is to ensure the safety, wellbeing and security of our students, which are our utmost priorities.”
