A young woman was pulled to the floor and kicked in the face by a teenage gang after a night out in Keighley.

The 21-year-old woman was walking home from the town centre with an 18-year-old male at 2.30am on Saturday. They had reached Braithwaite's Coronation Way when they were confronted by a group of teenage males and females.

The males started talking to the woman's companion and two of the girls talked to her. One of the girls grabbed the woman's hair and pulled her to the ground before repeatedly kicking her in the face. There was a scuffle before the gang ran off. The woman received a cut to the leg from her fall and some swelling from being kicked and punched in the face.

One of the attackers is described as a white female of about 16-years-old, of slim build, about 5'4" tall and with short black permed hair. She was wearing black jumper, black trousers and black shoes.

The other was a white female, aged 14-15, of medium build, about 5'4" tall with short brown hair. She was also dressed in black top trousers and shoes but wore square metal-rimmed glasses.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who can help identify the attackers. They should ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
