A WOMAN suffered head injuries when she was attacked during an attempted robbery in Barnsley.

The victim was assaulted just off Church Street, Cudworth, at around 6.15am, after she was approached from behind by a male.

A struggle took place and the woman was struck on the back of her head before the attacker fled empty-handed towards Church Street.

The offender was white, slim, in his mid-20s with a thin, pale face, and was wearing a black woolly hat, a short black jacket, black jogging bottoms and black shoes.
