Officers investigating an assault of a ten-year-old boy in Stretton are appealing for information.
At about 8.30am on Monday, the boy was walking along Sherwood Street when he was approached by a man.
The man took hold of the boy’s wrists and pinned him up against a fence. This caused the victim to drop money he was holding and the offender picked it up and left.
The victim did not suffer any injuries.
The offender is described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall, in his early 20s, of medium build with stubble on his face and bruising on his left eye.
He was wearing black trainers, black jogging bottoms and a hooded black top with the hood up.
Anyone with information is asked to call PC Colin Smith of Derbyshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
