Woman on bike attacked teenagers
A teenager has been assaulted by a woman on a bicycle who slapped her around the face then demanded she hand over her mobile phone.

The offender grabbed the young woman by her hair and hit her repeatedly, then tried to get hold of her friend who managed to run away.

The cyclist had twice ridden past the pair as they walked through Cathedral Place, Salisbury.

The offender is white, in her mid 30s, and wore a white jacket and bobble hat.

She spoke with a local accent and her words may have been slurred. The bicycle she was riding was an older-style woman's bike.

Just before the attack she had parked it at Harnham Gate in De Vaux Place.

The attack happened on Wednesday 6 February at approximately 1820 GMT.
