Leamington Editorial 23rd Aug, 2019   0

THUGS left a woman with serious injuries after carrying out a ‘shocking’ daylight assault and robbery.

A woman in her 20s was attacked by a man and a woman next to the garages at the rear of Radcliffe Gardens, Brunswick Street at around 2pm on Wednesday (August 21).

She was then taken to the rear entrance of Radcliffe Gardens where she was assaulted again and had her purse stolen.

The victim was taken to hospital where she is being treated for serious injuries to her leg and torso.

A 30-year-old woman from Warwick was arrested on suspicion of robbery and bailed until next month while enquiries continue.

Detective Constable Imran Ghouri from Leamington CID said: “We’ve launched an investigation to establish who was responsible for the shocking attack. We’re keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident or has any other information that could help with our enquiries.

“We’re especially keen to speak to anyone who caught the incident on their mobile phone.

“One of our lines of enquiry is that the victim and offenders were known to each other.”

Call police on 101 quoting incident 220 of August 21, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
