Police hunt after man grabs girl in Camborne

Police in Cornwall are searching for a man who grabbed a girl as she walked home from school.

The 12-year-old, who was walking alone, was grabbed in a lane which runs from Roskear Road and North Roskear Road, Camborne, between 1700 and 1800 on Tuesday.

She struggled before the man left her alone, police said.

He was described as being aged between 60 and 70, of skinny build, with short grey hair and a spotty face.

He was wearing a gold hoop earring, a black three-quarter-length coat with black trousers. His shoes had white laces.
