An 8 year old boy has been left with minor injuries after confronting a man he thought was acting suspiciously in Camborne.

Police are investigating the assault on Wellington Road at teatime on Friday.

They have put out a description of a scarred man in his 30s they want to speak to.

The little boy is thought to be recovering well.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At around 5pm on Friday 11th April, a man was seen behaving suspiciously and was challenged by the young child. The man then confronted the boy, who sustained minor injuries after a brief altercation.
 
"The suspect is described as white, approximately 30-years-old, and about 5’6” tall. He has a medium, muscly, build, and a dark beard with no moustache. He was wearing a sleeveless grey hooded top with red lining or piping, and a black jacket with the sleeves ripped off. He also has a prominent scar on his upper left arm. He was carrying an orange and grey backpack with something sharp sticking from it.
 
"Police are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the offender in the area or anyone acting suspiciously.
 
"Anyone with information should contact A/DS Lewis at Camborne CID via the Devon and Cornwall Police Non-emergency Line 101. Or via Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 quoting ref. AC/14/1486."
