A teenager was attacked after he got off a bus in Costessey.

The 15-year-old had got on a bus from Theatre Street in Norwich at 3.50pm on Friday, February 15 and noticed an older boy, thought to be around 18 years old, get on with a boy of around 14 who was carrying a silver tripod.

During the journey the 18-year-old became threatening. When the 15-year-old got off the bus at Townhouse Road in Costessey at 4.30pm, the 18-year-old followed and chased him. The victim was pulled from the doorway to the Post Office on West End Avenue by the 18-year-old and assaulted, suffering a bloody nose.

The offender is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build with short brown hair and was wearing burgundy jeans and a knitted hat.
