Teenagers punched in unprovoked attack
TWO young women have been punched by a man as they walked home from a night in York.
The women, aged 18 and 19-years-old, were walking home along Navigation Road when they were attacked by a man near the bridge over the River Foss.
The man punched both of the women, who were not seriously injured.
Detective Constable John Phillips, of York CID, said: “This was an unprovoked attack and although the women were not seriously injured, they were understandably very traumatised by their ordeal.
“I am appealing to anyone who saw the assaults taking place or saw anyone running away from the scene of the incident, to come forward and assist with our inquiries.”
Detectives are appealing for anyone who may have information about the incident, which happened at 11pm on September 23, to call 101 and ask for John Phillips or York CID.
