A TEENAGER was allegedly racially abused and assaulted on the Rodwell Trail in Weymouth.

The victim, a 14-year-old local boy, was cycling home when he passed two boys who hurled racist abuse at him, with one punching him in the face.
Police Constable Caroline Orchard, of Weymouth police, said: “I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with information about this incident to contact Dorset Police in confidence as soon as possible.
“This incident has left the young victim extremely frightened and we are keen to find those responsible.
“The offenders are described as white, aged between 16 and 18, with one wearing a black coat with a hood and patches on it.
