A TEENAGER suffered a bloody nose after being punched in the face during a street attack.
The 15-year-old boy was struck in Sandringham Road, near to the junction of Grosvenor Street, in Hartlepool.
He had been walking along the street at around 7pm on Friday, May 25, when another teenager went to walk past him but then punched him.
He was left with blood coming from his nose.
Police say the suspect is described as a boy aged around 16 or 17 years old, white, of stocky build, around 6ft-tall with straight, blonde hair with length just passed the ears.
He was said to be wearing a cream, long-sleeved, round-neck jumper, beige or tan chinos and white Nike trainers with a black tick.
He continued to walk along Sandringham Road in the direction of Duke Street after the attack.
