A pensioner has been attacked in Camborne - as he took things to a charity shop.

The 68 year old has got cuts, bruises and a suspected broken nose.

He was knocked to the ground by a skateboarder and then punched.

It happened on Trelowarren Street - three Mondays ago.

It is not clear why police have waited until now to launch an appeal.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are appealing for witnesses to an unprovoked assault on an elderly man in Camborne.
 
"The 68-year-old man was taking items to a charity shop in Trelowarren Street around noon on 22 September when the assault took place.
 
"As he stepped out of the doorway he was knocked off his feet by a male skateboarder.
 
"When he remonstrated with the skateboarder, he was punched in the face by the offender and knocked to the floor. He was then set upon by the offender. The offender walked off towards Camborne town square after the incident.
 
"The victim, from Redruth, sustained cuts and bruises to his arms and face, plus a suspected broken nose.
 
"Police are investigating the assault and seeking the suspect who is described as white, aged 15-17, of slim build, around 5ft 10ins to 6ft tall, and dark hair just above shoulder length. He was wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans and carrying a skateboard.
 
"Officers are appealing for witnesses to the incident and asking anyone with information to contact them on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference CR/108647/14."
