A 14-year-old boy was a victim of an unprovoked homophobic attack.

The victim was walking on Lincoln High Street on Saturday (June 2) when a man, believed to be in his 50s, made homophobic comments before slapping him once around the face before leaving the area.

Lincolnshire Police has sent an appeal out asking for anyone who might recognise the man to come forward.

The suspect is described as white, 5’10” tall, medium build and had a clean shaven face and shaven head.

He was wearing a black leather jacket, with a white top and blue jeans.
