HAVERHILL — Police are looking into a Jan. 16 incident in which a man followed an 11-year-old boy.

A man allegedly jumped out from behind a bush and startled the boy, who was walking along Conway Close, according to the Suffolk Constabulary. The boy ran away, but the assailant followed the boy until he ran onto the grounds of Castle Hill Middle School.

The man did not speak to the boy.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s or 30s, approximately 5-feet, 11-inches with a large build. He was balding and he had a cut on the back of his right hand. He was clad in a dark sweater and dark trousers, Suffolk authorities said.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is urged to call police constable Claire Burgess at 01284 774 100.
