Police are hunting a man who allegedly went on the rampage in Mullion this morning terrorising residents and pouring milk on a shop window.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing the man punching walls in the village and lashing out in front of them. At one point the Boots store had to lock its doors to allegedly stop the man getting in.

Police say the man, who was in the company of another man, then got on a bus and left the area. 

One eyewitness said on Facebook: "I watched him kick an elderly guys car then almost start on him when confronted, also smash/knock down all of spars signs and throw things at the glass.

"I spoke to a visitor who was watching and they seemed like they will never back to the area again because of it ( can't really blame them) which is just what my shop and the village needs"

Another witness said they locked the door at Boots because he was so intimidating.

"He was kicking the bus stop, throwing stuff at cars, shouting n swearing," she said. "It's really sad to see someone in such a bad way, but scary and upsetting for the folk who witness it."
