Police are appealing for witnesses following a sexual assault in Wendover near Aylesbury.
Thames Valley Police have told Heart, at about 4.40pm yesterday (Friday 13th Dec) the victim, an 11 year-old boy, was walking in Bacombe Lane, close to a bridleway in Wendover, when a man approached him and spoke to him. The boy was subsequently sexually assaulted by the man before the victim ran away. The boy did not sustain any injuries during the incident.
Neighbourhood patrols are taking place in the area and enquires are ongoing.
The offender is described as a white man aged approximately 40, with stubble on his face. He was wearing a grey and black diamond-patterned hooded top, dark blue jeans and black shoes.
Det Insp Ben Gasson to Heart: "I am appealing for anyone who saw a man matching this description or anyone seen acting suspiciously in this area to contact police. The victim was not hurt during the incident but has understandably been left shaken.
Incidents of this nature are extremely rare and are investigated thoroughly however if anyone has any concerns they can call their local neighbourhood team via our non-emergency number 101."
