Police have issued an e-fit of a man they want to speak to after a teenager suffered burns when a lit aerosol can was sprayed in his face.
The 13 year old was making his way home from school at around 3.40pm on Wednesday when he stopped to take something out of his bag.
He was in an alleyway between Kalmia Green and Hazel Way in Gorleston at the time, and then heard footsteps and saw two males standing close behind him.
One of the males was holding and flicking a lighter and the other male handed him an aerosol can, which was then sprayed at the teen and ignited for a second.
The two men then ran off laughing.

The boy managed to walk home and was taken to hospital where he received treatment for minor burn injuries to his face, including small blisters on his lips, and hair and eyebrows were also singed.
Police now want to trace the men both described as white, around 5ft 10ins tall and well built. One was wearing a light coloured hooded top with the hood up and the other, seen in the e-fit, was wearing a red 'Jack Wills' hooded top.
