Woman hurt in unprovoked street attack

Have your say

A WOMAN was struck repeatedly around the head by a teenage thug who grabbed her on a Sheffield street.

The 66-year-old was walking along Hurlfield Road, near The Punch Bowl pub, when she was attacked by a slim white youth.

The unprovoked assault stopped only because a passing motorist pulled over and the offender ran off. The thug was white, and wearing a grey hooded top and dark bottoms.

Witnesses to the incident at 11.15pm last Wednesday February 9, including the motorist, should call police on 0114 2202020.
