A teenage girl has reportedly been verbally abused and grabbed as she rode her horse near Truro.

It is thought that the 15-year-old pulled in to allow a driver to pass when they got out the car and shouted at her.

The woman then allegedly grabbed the girl's leg in an attempt to get her off her pony, but she wasn't hurt.

The teenager threatened to call the police and the woman drove off.

Anyone who saw what happened on Monday evening is being asked to contact officers.

The girl's mum posted on Facebook: "PLEASE BE AWARE.

"Rubes was assaulted tonight whilst out riding near home.

"Woman stopped her car. Shouting and swearing at her whilst Rubes pulled in to allow her to pass. Grabbed Rubes to pull her off and grabbed ponies reins!!

"Rubes threatened lady with the police. She then got in the car and drove off.

"Rubes rang me straight away and trotted home sharpish.

"Woman was wearing a grey jumper and grey track suit. Had big wide Sun glasses on. Trainers. Driving an old grey Ford people carrier.

"Please be vigilant guys. Police are informed."

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police told Pirate FM: "Police were called to reports a woman was verbally abusive towards a 15-year-old girl and attempted to get her from her pony by the leg before driving off.

"The teenager was shaken up but not harmed."

Anyone with any information is being asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference CR041762/18.
