Police are appealing for witnesses after a 21-year-old woman was assaulted in Macclesfield Town Centre.

At 10.40pm on 25 February 2017, the victim was walking with friends from the train station along Sunderland Street towards Mill Street. As they approached its junction with Brook Street two women approached the victim and confronted her before launching an attack which left her with a suspected broken nose.

The first offender is described as white, in her late 20s to mid-30s of, stocky build and around 5ft 3ins tall. She had shoulder length blonde hair. She was wearing black leggings, a brown knee length dress and flat shoes. She was carrying a shoulder bag which was either pale or white.

The second offender is described as white, aged late 20s to mid-30s, 5ft 3ins tall and quite stocky. She had brown hair which was quite long. She was wearing a brown cardigan or jacket and black trousers. She was carrying a brown shoulder bag.

PC Dan Lawton said: “There were a number of people who were walking past at the time of the assault. I would urge anyone who saw this but has not yet come forward to contact police. Also anyone with the two women that night is urged to contact me. This was a nasty attack which was unprovoked and we want to find those responsible.

“We want people visiting the town centre to feel safe and enjoy their time there. Incidents such as this will not be tolerated. We hope that you can help us with our enquiries so we can stamp out this type of behaviour, and bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Dan Lawton on 101 quoting incident number 946 25 February 2017.

Alternatively information can be given anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
