Woman assaulted in Swindon

Wiltshire Police is appealing for witnesses following an assault in Swindon.

On Saturday 18 March 2017 between 3.45am and 4am at Tennessee Chicken, Victoria Road, Swindon an unknown woman attacked another woman, grabbing her hair and dragging her to the floor.  The victim then fell on her back and banged her head causing her to black out temporarily.

Staff in the take-away ushered the offender and another woman (believed to be her friend) off the premises;  the victim was taken to A&E by police officers as she was left with cuts and scratches to her head and hand, but left the hospital before being treated.
