Truro's MP has written to the city's police chief asking for a meeting to discuss anti-social behaviour after a man was assaulted in an incident in the city centre.

Cherilyn Mackrory wrote to Inspector Colin Wheeler after an incident last night at Furniss Island left the man with minor injuries. The small park near the centre of the city has been blighted by anti-social behaviour in recent weeks.

A welcome sign put up by schoolchildren was vandalised earlier this month and there have been reports of anti-social behaviour in the area.

Sgt Dave Pearce from Truro, Tregony and Perranporth Neighbourhood Team tweeted this morning appealing for witnesses saying it was an 'isolated' incident: "Male assaulted in Furniss island, Truro last night. Minor injuries and victim speaking with police. This is an isolated incident."

Following the incident Mrs Mackrory said she had been contacted by concerned members of the public and businesses and wanted to meet the police to discuss solutions.

"Following the incident last night in Furniss Island, I have today written to Truro’s Police Inspector asking for a meeting to discuss crime and anti-social behaviour in the town [sic].

"A number of residents and businesses have contacted me over the last couple of weeks about a number of issues. We must ensure any crime and anti-social behaviour in the city is dealt with accordingly.

"I want Truro to be a safe place for everyone to live, work and visit."
