Police now investigating after incident in South Ham
A SCHOOLBOY was pushed into a road by a stranger as he walked through South Ham.
The nine-year-old victim was walking along Paddock Road between 8.30am and 8.55am last Friday when an unknown man approached him from behind and pushed him into the road.
The boy ran off and the man, who did not attempt to take the boy, walked off towards Park View Infant School.
The incident is now being investigated as an allegation of assault by police.
PC Michael Higgins said: “It is believed a dark-coloured car was passing at the time of the incident. Was it you driving? Did you see this incident?”
The man is described as white, wearing a black hat, black coat, black trousers and white trainers.
A 26-year-old man from Basingstoke was arrested in connection with this incident but has been released without charge.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact PC Higgins on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
