Kettering Teen Hit By Stranger With Stick

A teenage girl has been hit round the face with a stick by a stranger in a Kettering park.

The girl was walking through the Manor House Gardens near Sheep Street sometime between 5pm and 5.30pm on Saturday, June 6, when a man stopped her and asked if she had a mobile phone.

When she said she didn't have a phone, the man searched her pockets.

After finding nothing, he picked up a stick and hit the girl around the face several times before walking off towards the Market Place.

The girl suffered minor cuts and bruises but did not need medical treatment.

The man who searched her was white, between 18 and 22, slim and about 5ft 8in. He had pale features and was wearing a red baseball cap, dark trousers, Nike trainers and a white T-shirt with a large Adidas logo on the chest.

He was with two other white men who were about the same age and height. They wore dark clothes and one was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap.

Witnesses, or anyone who knows anything about this incident, can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, they can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or use the anonymous online form at
