Robbery/Assault Causing Bodily Harm

On January 4, 2012 at approximately 17:50 hours a female was walking to work through Queens Park when she was attacked from behind. The individual had her iPod on and had no prior indication the attack was going to take place.

The attackers struck the female in the head with an object and pushed her to the ground. The attackers demanded she hand over her property. While on the ground one of the attackers lunged at her, at which time she managed to defend herself by kicking back. The males subsequently fled the area running North East through Queens Park.
