Woman Injured By Stone Thrown From Bromsgrove Rooftop
Police are appealing for information after a woman was injured by a stone thrown from a rooftop in Bromsgrove town centre.
It took place in High Street at about 10.10pm on Saturday, 20 October.
The victim, a woman in her 20s, was on a night out with friends. As she walked near the HSBC bank she felt a pain to her head, and it was discovered a stone had been thrown from a rooftop.
It caused a cut to the victim's head, which bled considerably. An ambulance was called but she did not need hospital treatment.
The incident is being treated as a malicious wounding.
PC Penny Davies of West Mercia Police said: "We are appealing for information and also making the public aware that if they see people throwing stones in the town centre, they should contact police immediately.
"Although this lady was only slightly hurt, the paramedics did say that it had taken a considerable blow to break the skin. Luckily she was able to carry on with her evening out, but it could have been very serious indeed."
Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact PC Davies on the non-emergency number 101 quoting incident 677-s-201012 or ring the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
