POLICE are hunting a man who shouted abuse at a disabled 15-year-old boy.

The boy was walking a dog with his mother in Knowle Park, Fair Oak, when an argument ensued over dogs with a man walking three canines.

The man shouted at the boy and referred to his disability, although police were not able to say what this is.

He is described as around 50 years old, 5ft 7in tall, of broad build, with short shaven grey hair and wearing jeans and a light blue polo shirt. His dogs were Labradors, one black and two chocolate coloured.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information on the incident, which happened around 10.30am on Tuesday to call PC Stockham on 101.
