A boy was slapped in the face by an older teenager at a recreation ground in St Albans.
The assault took place at the recreation ground in Sherwood Avenue at around 5.15pm on Friday, October 5.
An 11-year-old boy was slapped in the face following a verbal argument, causing a reddening to his cheek.
The offender is described as a white boy, aged around 15 or 16, with blond hair and an earring. He was wearing tracksuit bottoms and had a bag over his shoulder, and was riding a bike with blue handlebars.
PC James Keene, who is investigating, said: “I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened to get in touch. The incident happened during a busy time in the park after school so there should hopefully be people who saw what happened.
