Sunderland schoolboy assaulted

Police are appealing for information after a teenager was assaulted in Sunderland.

A 14-year-old boy was standing with friends at the bus stop opposite the mosque on Ryhope Road in Sunderland just before three o'clock on November 30th when a jogger appeared to misunderstand what was being said.

The jogger then turned back and punched the teenager in the face, bursting his lip.

The jogger is:

  • A white male
  • Around 30-years-old
  • 6 feet tall and of athletic build
  • Browny-blonde hair
  • With a scar on his right cheek

The jogger was wearing a blue coloured long sleeved Skins top with grey gloves and long grey Skins bottoms with a stripe down the side. He was also wearing running shoes.
