A WOMAN has been left with a cut to the shoulder in an incident with a hooded teenager near her home in Loudwater yesterday.

At about 4.15pm yesterday, a 20-year-old woman noticed the youth near the fence of her property's back garden in St Peter’s Close, Loudwater.

She ran through to the front garden of the property, where she collided with him.

In the collision, he struck her shoulder and she received a small cut which was treated by paramedics at the scene, believed to have been caused by some kind of implement.

The suspect is white, around 14 or 15-years-old, 5ft 3ins tall and of slim to medium build.

He was wearing dark blue baggy jeans and a black hooded top with the hood up.

Det Sgt Richard Earl from High Wycombe Force CID said: “We would like to speak to anyone who saw a teenager matching this description and hopefully, as it was mid-afternoon, someone will have seen him running from the house.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Sgt Earl on the 24-hour Police Enquiry number 101.
