Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a woman was assaulted as she tried to break up a fight on Pitt Street earlier this month.

The incident took place around 1.15 am on Saturday 22nd January when the 18-year-old Morecambe woman and her boyfriend were followed out of Ikys takeaway by a white man in his 20s.

He started a fight with her boyfriend and she was pushed over and kicked as she intervened.

The woman was helped to her feet by three young men and police are keen to speak with these men as witnesses.

She was taken to the Royal Lancashire Infirmary where she received treatment for cuts and bruises.

“I would appeal to anyone that witnessed this incident to contact police," urged PC Phil Salliss. "In particular, I would like to speak with the three young men, possibly students who helped the victim to her feet as they could be key witnesses.”
