Police are appealing for witnesses and information following an assault in Lowestoft, after the victim, a 24-year-old woman, was approached by an unknown man and woman who asked if she had any money.

After the victim replied ‘no’, the victim’s walking crutch was kicked away from her, causing her to fall to the floor, before she was punched in the ribs and to the right side of her face, causing reddening – and taken to the James Paget Hospital as a precaution before being discharged later.

The incident happened in St Margaret’s Road, between 10.30am and 10.45am on Thursday 25th March.

The man is described as white, around six-foot tall, in his late twenties, and was wearing black jeans and a black and white top.

The woman is described as white, in her late twenties, with long black hair. She was wearing a white puffer-style jacket and black jogging bottoms with white stripes down the sides.

Enquiries are ongoing and officers are urging witnesses or anyone knows those responsible, to contact Suffolk Police, by phoning 101 or by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
