POLICE are hunting a young boy suspected of fracturing a teenager’s jaw.

The boy, believed to be aged 12 or under, is alleged to have punched a 19-year-old in the side of the head.

The male victim was climbing a tree in West Park, in Silverstone Avenue, Bognor Regis, on August 21 when he told a group of boys to stop bullying younger children.

One of them called him names, walked up to him, punched him in the left side of the head and ran off.

The suspect has spiky blond hair, blue eyes with a mole under the right side of his lip, spoke in a high pitched voice, and was wearing a blue football top, skinny jeans, white trainers with a red tick on the side and a red and black wristband.

Call Sussex police with information on 101.
