Girl, 10, beaten up on way home
A 10-year-old girl was attacked as she walked home from school.
A teenage boy, dressed from head to toe in black, demanded money then punched and kicked the youngster leaving her with bruises.
The girl was assaulted as she made her way through Noakes Meadow in South Ashford last Wednesday.
A female passer-by intervened in the attack which happened at 4.20pm and the teenage boy ran off towards the Willow Centre and through the alleyway which leads to the Murco Garage in Brookfield Road.
After making sure the girl was all right, the woman left, but police would like to trace her as she may be able to provide vital information.The offender was wearing a black balaclava, black hooded top, black jeans and black Nike Max trainers. He is described as white, aged 14-16 years, of stocky build with brown eyes.
Jon Green, spokesman for Kent Police, said: “Incidents like this are pretty rare and we wouldn’t want to cause alarm because it isn’t the sort of thing that happens very often, but if anyone does have information we would like to hear from them.”
