A WOMAN in her 70s was left with two broken wrists after an unprovoked attack in Wellesbourne.

The woman was walking along Walton Road in the direction of Walton Hall on Friday (October 23) at around 2pm when she passed a group of men on pushbikes.

One of the men pushed her from behind, causing her to fall to the floor. She was left with two broken wrists, bruising to her lower back and arms, a black eye and grazed knees.

The suspect is described as a white man, wearing grey clothing and with a grey push bike. He is believed to have spoken with an Eastern European accent.

PC Abigail Smith said: “While no arrests have been made, investigations are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding this nasty, unprovoked assault which has left a woman with significant injuries.

“We know a number of people would have been in the area at around the time of the incident so I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed it to please come forward.

“I would also urge anyone who may have seen a group of men on their pushbikes in the area on Friday to also get in touch.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
