A cyclist pinned the boy to the ground because he thought he had yelled at him at Riverside Park in Bitterne.

The 10-year-old boy was playing with friends and was shouting to them when a cyclist rode by.
The youngster has told police that the cyclist seemed to think he was shouting at him.
The man approached the boy, grabbed him and pinned him to the ground. He shouted at the boy and then cycled off.
The boy suffered bruising in the assault.
The cyclist is described as:
