We are appealing for witnesses following a suspicious incident in Winchester yesterday (13 July) where a boy was assaulted.
At around 8.30am, an 11-year-old boy was walking along Bereweeke Avenue and turned left into an alleyway between Taplings Road and Eling Close.
While walking down this alleyway, he was approached by a man unknown to him who put his arms around the boy’s waist.

-black, shoulder-length hair with grey in it
He was wearing:
-a black puffa style jacket on with the hood up
