Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an assault of a teenage girl in High Wycombe.

At around 2.25pm on Friday 18 August a 13-year-old girl had been sitting on a bench next to a taxi rank in Frogmoor with her friends. She was then the victim of an unprovoked assault in which a teenage girl grabbed her hair and started to kick her.

The offender pulled her off the bench by her hair and on to the ground. The victim was able to run away to KFC but was assaulted again when the offender ran after her and pushed her to the ground. The offender was then joined by a second girl who kicked her in the head and punched her while she was on the ground. The offenders then ran away.

The victim sustained bruising to her head, back and arms and has suffered hair loss. She attended Wycombe Minor Injuries Unit for treatment.

The first offender is white aged around 15 years old, with long red/ginger hair in a ponytail, thin build, wearing a grey long sleeved top and black leggings.  

The second offender is white, aged around 15 years old, with long dark curly hair, wearing a white polo top and black leggings. She was carrying a black handbag.
