Police in Cromer are investigating after an elderly man was assaulted.

The incident happened on Sunday 14 December between 9.15am and 9.30am when a man in his 70s and woman walked along the cliff top path between the Happy Valley area and the lighthouse.

Three small dogs off their leads have jumped up at them both and the man has then raised his leg to try and stop the dogs jumping up.

The male owner of the dogs has appeared and confronted the man shouting abusive and offensive language at him before punching him in the head causing the victim to fall backwards and lose consciousness for a few minutes.

The man is described as white, aged late 30s to early 40s, approximately 6 foot tall and of a slim build and was wearing a dark coloured woolly hat, a long beige coloured raincoat and had his right arm in a sling.

Police are keen to trace the man and would ask that anyone with information relating to this incident call Norfolk Constabulary on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
