Penzance police are appealing for witnesses to an assault that happened in Market Jew Street on Tuesday.

Shortly before 5pm, a 14-year-old boy, a visitor to Penzance, had a sandwich thrown at him and was then punched to the face whilst standing next to the Humphry Davy statue.

The offender is described as a white male aged 15-16-years-old with short spiked fair hair; he was wearing a black hoody and carrying a black Nike rucksack.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Devon and Cornwall police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111, quoting crime reference number AP/14/609.
