Police are appealing for information after a 47-year-old woman was assaulted in Lowestoft yesterday.
The victim was walking along Hollingsworth Road at about 10.30pm when a blue Honda Civic, with two men in the front and two women in the back, pulled up to the kerb.
The men got out and urinated against the wall of a house.
The victim told the men not to do it, at which point one of them put her into a headlock. He repeatedly grabbed and pushed at her before letting her go. The victim received cuts and scrapes to her legs.
The man then walked away, but returned with the second man. He grabbed the woman again and slapped her in the face, before pushing her into a wall and pushing her over. All four people then left in the car.
The male passenger is described as white, in his 20s, of skinny build with light-coloured, short, cropped hair with a fringe and clean shaven. He was wearing jeans and a two-tone t-shirt thought to have a darker coloured bar at the bottom with a lighter colour at the top.
The driver is described as white, in his 20s, of stocky build with a round face and dark collar length hair and clean shaven. He was wearing a white short sleeved t-shirt.
Anyone who recognised the description of the men, who witnessed the incident, or has any information relating to the event, is asked to contact PC Laurence Connolly at Lowestoft Police Station on 101 quoting reference LO/14/2207, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
