Police are appealing for information after a 14 year old girl was assaulted and had money stolen in Morecambe.
Around 9.45pm on Monday 2nd December the teenager was walking along Queen Street when she passed a group of teenagers.
As she reached the Premier Shop she was pushed to the floor from behind and was then scratched and kicked before having money and her bus pass stolen.
The only descriptions the young girl was able to give of the people involved was of a white girl aged 14-16, wearing a short, pink skirt and a white boy, also aged 14-16, wearing light grey Voi jeans with black pockets and black Nike Blazer trainers.
PC Matt Entwistle said: “This was a nasty, unprovoked assault by a group of teenagers on a lone 14 year old girl. She suffered cuts and bruising and has been left shaken by what’s happened.
“If anybody was in the area around the time of the assault and thinks they may have seen this particular group of teenagers then I would urge them to contact police.
“The two descriptions the young girl was able to provide highlight quite distinctive clothing and if anybody thinks they can identify these people from the descriptions given then I would ask them to come forward.”
