THREE men who attacked an 18-year-old woman at a bus stop are being hunted by police.
The Tunisian teenager was repeatedly punched and kicked during the assault, which occurred outside Mid-Cheshire College’s Hartford campus at 2pm on Friday.
Investigations are at an early stage, but detectives will study CCTV footage and interview the victim with the help of an interpreter this week.
The attackers also sprayed something in her face, police say.
A spokesman added: “They have then gone through her handbag and stolen items from within it. The men left the scene on a black moped.”
One of the attackers is described simply as “a white male”, but the two others are both thought to be aged 20-25, and are both around 5ft 6ins in height and of slim build.
One is thought to be of Asian descent and has dark hair, and was dressed in dark clothing.
The second is white with a pierced right eyebrow and several piercings to both ears. He was wearing baggy jeans, a black T-shirt, a belt with spikes on and black boots with metal trim.
Police are also trying to trace a female who came to the victim’s aid after her attackers fled.
