A woman in a wheelchair has been shot with an airgun in Camborne.

The pellet punctured the 54 year old's cheek as she walked her dog last night.

Police want to hear from anyone who might have seen something around Tuckingmill Valley Park.

DC Rebekah Shorten said: "Police are treating this as a serious assault which could have been much worse had it struck the victim in the eye.
 
"We are now asking residents in the Tuckingmill Valley Park area of Camborne if they witnessed a BB or pellet gun being fired in the park."
 
Anybody with any information regarding this incident or anybody who may have been in the area at this time is asked to contact police on 101 and quote Crime ref AC/13/2568 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
