15-Year-Old Girl Is Attacked In Cheltenham

Police in Cheltenham are appealing for witnesses after a 15-year-old girl was attacked on her way home.

The girl had been walking from Glos Cat site through an alleyway towards Secacombe Road at around 3.30pm Friday, January 19 when two men grabbed her.

She was pulled to the floor and pinned down by the men, who punched her and attempted to pull down her trousers.

The girl managed to escape and ran to a nearby house.

It is possible that the attackers were disturbed as they were not able to stop her from screaming.

One of the men is described as white, about 5-foot-2-inches tall, in his late 40's, and of a big build.

He is believed to have short brown hair, which is spiked up on top, clean-shaven with a mole or wart under his left eye, near to his nose.

He may have had a welsh accent.

He was wearing a mid-thigh length black coat, with a zip pocket on the left sleeve and a double zip fastener at the front.

The second man is described as white, 52 to 53 yrs-of-age, of medium/muscular build, around 5-foot-7-inches tall, with a pale face; grey collar length hair, part held in a pony tail and grey/black moustache of average thickness.

He is believed to have a Gloucestershire accent and was wearing a cream coloured waist length jacket, zip fastened up the front with a blue cockerel symbol on the left side of the chest and light blue denim jeans.

One of the men wore black workman's boots, the other wore distinctive black shoes with an orange and black leopard pattern print towards the toes

Anybody with any information is asked to call Cheltenham police on 0845 090 1234 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference number 370 of January 19th.
