On Thursday (7/9) at around 4pm near Nuneham Grove, Westcroft, the victim was assaulted by two others and some of his clothes were taken.
Investigating officer, Police Constable Steven King from Milton Keynes investigation hub said: “We were aware of a video circulating on social media connected to this incident. It showed an injured teenage boy who had had his clothes taken from him and who had been assaulted.
“We want to thank the members of the public who have already come forward to report this incident. Obviously it is very upsetting for the victim, his family and his friends to know that this video is still out there and for their sake we would ask that people of all ages do not share it. There have also been a lot of malicious comments made towards the persons involved in this incident and we are asking people to refrain from making any further due to the upset it is causing the victim and his family."
