Police have issued an E-fit picture of a man they want to speak to after a 13-year-old boy was sprayed with a lit aerosol can.

The teenager suffered minor burns after the attack in an alleyway between Kalmia Green and Hazel Way in Gorleston around 3.40pm on Wednesday, 24 April.

The boy had knelt down to take something out of his bag when he heard footsteps and saw two men. One of the men was flicking a lighter and the other handed him an aerosol can which was then sprayed at the 13-year-old and ignited for a second. The two then ran off laughing.

The men are both described as white, around 5ft 10ins tall and well built, with one wearing a light coloured hooded top with hood up and the other, seen in the E-fit, wearing a red ‘Jack Wills’ hooded top with ‘Wills’ in white writing.
