Woman left with broken nose in Macclesfield attack

Witnesses are being urged to come forward after a woman was left with a suspected broken nose following an assault in Macclesfield.

The 21-year-old was walking with friends from the train station along Sunderland Street towards Mill Street at 10.40pm on Saturday 25 February, when they were approached by two women.

They confronted the victim, before launching an attack.

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, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
