Would-be robbers attacked a teenager as she walked through Eaton Park in Norwich.

The 17-year-old victim was walking near to the Pavilion between 9.30pm and 10pm on Wednesday when she was approached by four teenagers. She was punched in the back of the head and pushed to the ground before she had her handbag rifled through. She suffered minor injuries. Nothing was stolen and the would-be robbers, described as white and in their mid to late teens, ran off in the direction of North Park Avenue.

The first suspect was described as about 19-years-old, unshaven with dark brown hair and wearing a hooded top, bright blue Adidas tracksuit bottoms and dark coloured trainers. The second was described as being between 15 and 16-years-old, of skinny build and about 5ft 5ins, with freckles on his face and ginger hair, and wearing a grey tracksuit with the hood up.

The third suspect was thought to be between 17 and 18-years-old, 6ft and of medium build, with blond hair, and the fourth suspect was described as being about 19-years-old, about 5ft 9ins, with dark brown hair, facial hair and a tattoo on the side of his neck.
