A toddler was injured after being hit by a bottle at the falls in Richmond on Saturday.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information about the incident which occurred at about 5.10pm.

The incident involved an altercation between a group of men, resulting in one of them kicking a glass bottle which hit a four-year-old child on the foot.

Police say this caused a small cut to the child’s foot, which left them very upset and distressed.

A police spokesperson said: “We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident – in particular, information about the suspect.

“He is a white man, in his early 20s, with short brown hair.

“He is described as having an accent from the Stockton-on-Tees area.

“He was wearing black shorts and a gold chain and no top.”

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC Joanna Outram.
