Child assaulted in school playground

Thu, 24 Sep 2015

Police are investigating after a woman allegedly assaulted a child in what they're calling a "completely unacceptable" incident.

The blonde haired woman, aged between 30 and 40, approached the 12-year-old boy at around 6.30pm last night on the Cronk Y Berry School playground.

She reportedly grabbed him and pushed him against the school fence using both her hands around his neck to hold him there - she then made threats and pulled his hair.

As a result the boy, who didn't know the woman, suffered reddening to his face and neck and he, and his friends, were left distressed.

Inspector Derek Flint says police want to hear from anyone who witnessed what happened:
