A woman was kicked and punched while she lay on the floor after she was set upon by a trio of women in Bungay.

The victim, a woman in her 20s, was walking along Earsham Street, near the junction with Chaucer Street, at around 5.30pm on Friday, September 22, when the assault occurred.

She was approached by a group of three women who, following a brief exchange, grabbed her by the hair and punched her in the face, causing her to fall to the ground.

They then punched and kicked her while she lay on the floor.

During the attack, the victim suffered bruising and cuts to her face.

The women are believed to have left the scene on foot in the direction of Outney Road.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has any information should contact the Suffolk Police Neighbourhood Response Team in Lowestoft on 101 quoting reference 62717/17.
