Assault – Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault in Witney on Sunday (17th June).

At around 5.30pm an 11-year-old girl was walking home through The Leys when she was approached by a group of teenagers, five boys and one girl, all around 15 to 16-years-old, near the entrance to Witney Bowling Club on Station Lane.

Some of the boys grabbed the girl and held her, while the female teenager punched her in the face.

PC Nigel Lomas, investigating the incident, said: “The girl was left with a nasty injury to her eye and was very shocked by what happened.

“This was an unprovoked attack on a young girl and I would appeal to anyone who saw it or knows who is responsible, to come forward.”

If you have information please contact PC Lomas via 0845 8 505 505. If you do not wish to speak to police or give your name you can call the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 55 111.
