Police need to trace a man after he allegedly grabbed a nine-year-old boy and pushed him into a wall in Lowestoft.

Officers are seeking witnesses and are keen to trace the man, described as white, about 6ft tall, wearing a black hooded top with a zip-up jumper and blue trousers. He had a young child, possibly two or three-years-old who was wearing a dark blue coat, with him, when trouble flared in an incident near the junction of Church Road and Cambridge Road about 1.15pm on Saturday (October 26).

Two children – a nine-year-old boy and an eight-year-old girl – were walking along the road when the nine-year-old accidentally bumped into the young child.

The nine-year-old apologised, but the man then grabbed him by his clothing and pushed him into a wall. The nine-year-old was uninjured and both the man and the small child and the nine-year-old and the eight-year-old continued on their way.

Police need to trace the man and are asking him, anyone who knows who he is, or anyone who saw what happened to call PC 1683 Baldwin at Lowestoft police on 101.
