Youngster assaulted after 'pulling a face' at passer-by in Porthleven
1:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
A youngster who pulled a face at a passerby outside Porthleven’s supermarket was subsequently assaulted.
A woman he was accompanying was then assaulted, when she was pushed away from the argument.
These were among the 12 crimes reported to the police last month – the same number as during September last year.
In a police report read out at the last meeting of Porthleven Town Council members heard that there were also two linked incidents of criminal damage during the same night, when a navigation light was damaged and an advertising sign was ripped from a wall. On a separate day a shed was broken into and plastic cutlery was set alight, with woodland also set on fire on the Penrose Estate.
There were two domestic assaults, the theft of a mobile phone and a burglary of the snooker club at the Bickford Institute, where nothing was taken but the outer and inner wooden doors were damaged.
A purse was taken from a business in the port, but later found.
Finally, there was a report of a dog bite, although this was described as “very minor” and did not break the skin.
