Police are appealing for information after a 15-year-old boy had his tooth knocked out during an assault in Bury St Edmunds.

The boy was walking along a footpath running from Spring Lane to Beetons Way with friends at around 10.30pm on Saturday April 12.

A man walking in the opposite direction took exception to how the boy was acting and pushed him before punching him in the face, causing his tooth to be knocked out and cuts to his mouth.

The man is described as white, around 5ft 11ins, of skinny build, in his late twenties to early thirties with facial stubble.

He was wearing jeans and a black hooded top with the hood up.

Anyone who was in the area at the time and has seen this man is asked to call DC Michael Chapman at Bury St Edmunds CID on 101 quoting BU/14/1001 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
