A boy was left in hospital after being attacked by as many as 15 teenagers while jogging in Werribee.

The 15-year-old was jogging at a primary school on Greave Street in Werribee about 4.15pm on Monday when he was approached by 10 to 15 youths.

Several of the attackers allegedly assaulted the boy, causing serious injuries.

They also fled with his mobile phone and shoes.

The teenager was taken to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators from Taskforce Wayward have now identified the parties involved in the reported assault in Werribee on Monday and are now investigating whether they were known to each other.

Belongings taken from the victim during the incident have since been returned and the 15-year-old boy has been released from hospital.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and any witnesses are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
