A young woman was 'punched, kicked and stamped on’ during the incident

Three people have been arrested, after a woman was assaulted on the Buckland Estate in Newton Abbot on Saturday night [10 August].

Police are appealing for witnesses and investigating a report of robbery, in which the victim was attacked near Grenville Close area at around 11pm.

They say she was ‘punched, kicked and stamped on’ during the incident and had items, including a purse, stolen from her.

The victim, aged in her 20s, received injuries to her face and upper body. She has received medical treatment and is currently recovering with support.

Detective Sergeant Kay Deer said: “This attack is not thought to be random and we believe the suspects may have known the victim. Police do not have reason to believe that any other attacks are likely, but would, however, warn people to be vigilant.

“If anyone has any information, or saw anything suspicious, please contact police on 101 and quote crime reference CR/72349/19.”

Two local men and a woman have been detained on suspicion of robbery and GBH - and remain in police custody.
