Teenage girl punched in face in Great Yarmouth assault

A TEENAGE girl was punched in the face in an early evening assault in Great Yarmouth.

The 14-year-old was walking on Regent Road near the junction with Apsley Road with a 17-year-old friend when the pair were approached by a woman in her mid-20s.

The woman asked the younger of the girls for money but when she was told she did not have any, the woman punched the teen.

Police said the girl 'sustained pain to her face' but not did require medical treatment.

Officers are now appealing for information to the assault on Saturday, June 9, which happened between 6.35pm and 7.05pm. The woman had short dark hair and a tanned complexion and was wearing a yellow short sleeve t-shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information should call PC Bob Fossey at Great Yarmouth police on 101.
