Detectives are appealing for information following the assault on the 15-year-old, which took place in the early hours of this morning.

At around 2.50am, the girl was walking along Beatty Close in the town when she was approached by a man who hit her with a metal pole before stealing her mobile phone.

The victim sustained suspected fractures to her arm/hand as a result of the incident.

The attacker was white, wearing dark clothing with his face covered.

Det Con Riki Chase, of Great Yarmouth CID, who is leading the enquiry into the incident, asked possible witnesses to come forward for more information.

“The level of violence used in this assault is unusual, considering the age of the victim and I would like to hear from anyone who could help us identify the offender quickly.”

Det Con Chase can be contacted on 101 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
