Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the assault of a woman in her 20s in Bungay.

The incident occurred at around 5.30pm on Friday, September 22.

The victim was walking along Earsham Street, near the junction with Chaucher Street, when she was approached by three women who, following a brief exchange, grabbed the victim by the hair and punched her in the face causing her to fall to the floor.

She was then kicked and punched whilst she lay on the floor.

The victim sustained pain, bruising and cuts to her face and the women are believed to have left the scene on foot in the direction of Outney Road.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has knowledge of it should contact the Suffolk Police Neighbourhood Response Team in Lowestoft on 101 quoting reference 62717/17.
