A schoolgirl is being questioned after a Bodmin shopkeeper had paint thrown over him.
The fourteen year old has been arrested, as police say they're treating it as a race hate crime.
They say a gang of teenagers, believed to be local, abused him before the attack on Saturday night.
It happened at a corner shop on Fore Street on Saturday night.
Police believe the group to be at least four local youths aged in their mid to late teens, some of whom are female.
Bodmin Police Inspector David Meredith said,” Devon and Cornwall Police take hate crimes very seriously. We have a positive and robust policy in dealing with any hate crime or hate incident.”
One person has been arrested.
