Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was injured in an unprovoked attack in Thirsk.

 

North Yorkshire Police say the victim, an 18-year-old local woman, was walking with a friend down the alleyway at the side the of The Fleece pub in Market Place at around 9pm on Sunday 7 April 2013, when they were approached by a group of three men and four women.

 

Officers report that one of the men in the group punched the victim in the face, injuring her eye. He is described, by police as white, around 6ft tall, with a medium build and long dark hair.

 

Officers are appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or can help to identify the offender, to come forward.

 

Sergeant Nick Hill, of North Yorkshire Police, said: “The victim was left requiring hospital treatment in what appears to be a motiveless and senseless attack.

 

“Fortunately, her injuries turned out to be minor but they could have been far more serious.

 

“It is important that we find out who was responsible for hitting this young woman without warning or provocation and I urge anyone who can help the investigation to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as possible.”

 

Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 – select option 2 – and ask for Nick Hill.

 

Alternatively, information can be emailed to nick.hill@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
