Police are searching for a woman in her 20s who assaulted a teenage girl in Melksham on Sunday.

Three girls were crossing the High Street on Sunday afternoon at around 4.40pm when a woman got out of a car and started shouting at them, pulling a 14-year-old to the floor.

She is described as white, slim, between 5’4’’ and 5’6’’, with long ginger hair and blue eyes. She is believed to be between 20 and 28 years old, and was driving a small “old-styled car”.

Anyone who witnessed the attack or who recognises the description is asked to contact PC 1753 Karen Haddrell on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
