Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

A re­newed ap­peal has been is­sued by po­lice in an ef­fort to track down a man of­fi­cers would like to talk to about an as­sault in Trow­bridge. Wilt­shire Po­lice said a 43-yearold woman was walk­ing in the area of Cas­tle Street near to the Kings Arms pub when she be­came aware of a group of men who she did not know started shout­ing abuse at her. The force said that when the woman took out her mo­bile phone to take a pic­ture of the men in­volved, they as­saulted her by pulling her hair and kick­ing her. They at­tempted to grab her mo­bile phone, which was dam­aged dur­ing the in­ci­dent. She was then taken to hos­pi­tal in Trow­bridge. A po­lice spokesman added: “It is be­lieved there were ap­prox­i­mately 10 males in the group, and it is thought they are Pol­ish.” PC Scott Ranachan said: “We have been car­ry­ing out ex­ten­sive en­quiries into this in­ci­dent since we re­ceived the re­port but un­for­tu­nately have been un­able to iden­tify those in­volved.”
