Police are hunting a man who kicked over a pram carrying a two-year-old boy after the child's mother refused to hand over money.

The 30-year-old woman was approached while walking on Criffel Road in Dumfries at about 19:45 on Thursday.

When she refused to hand over any cash, the man attacked her and kicked over the pram.

A police spokesman said the child had not suffered any injuries as a result of the incident.

The man has been described as white, about 5ft 5in tall and in his early 30s.

He was of slim build and was wearing dark jeans, a dark top and possibly white trainers.

He was also wearing a dark baseball cap.

The man was last seen heading in the direction of Lochside Road near the shops in the area.
