Young child injured in suspected hit and run

Police are appealing for witnesses following a suspected hit and run in Peterborough.

The seven-year-old victim was walking home along Redmile Walk at about 3.10pm yesterday afternoon (June 16) when a motocross type bike, being ridden on the footpath, struck him before making off towards Eye Road.

The boy suffered slight injuries and the ambulance service was called as a precaution but he was not taken to hospital.

The motorcyclist was described as wearing a black jumper and white shorts.

PC Chris Boother said:  This incident could have quite easily caused a lot more harm and so I would urge anyone who may have seen something to get in contact.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
