TWO women kicked another to the floor in a violent robbery in Golborne.

At about 6.05pm last Saturday the 20-year-old victim was walking home from work along Lowton Road when she was kicked to the floor from behind.

Her pair of female attackers then tried to rob her of her handbag while punching and kicking her.

She managed to fend the assailants off and protect the bag, but a bottle of vodka she had in a carrier bag slipped out and the pair ran off with it, towards Golborne High School.

The woman had a number of bruises and was left badly shaken.

Both thugs are white women in their mid 20s, about 5ft 6ins tall, with dark hair pulled back and of slim build. One was wearing a lot of dark make-up, a red Puma tracksuit, Ugg style boots and gold hooped earrings.

Her accomplice was also wearing a lot of make-up and had a large, prominent nose. She had several piercings in her ear and was wearing a purple jumper, jeans and Ugg style boots.

PC Lynsey Watson said: “The victim has been left badly shaken by this incident. Clearly the offender are reckless and are willing to use violence to steal. They need to be caught as soon as possible.

“As Lowton Road is a busy road we are appealing for any witnesses who saw the attack to call us.”
