Hooded gang beat woman

A WOMAN who was beaten by three men on a cycle track has spoken about her terrifying ordeal.

Sheridan Whittaker, 20, was knocked to the ground and beaten by three attackers wearing hooded tops who also tried to rob her as she walked to meet friends.

She was left with lumps and bruises and the ordeal has shaken her so much that she is terrified to go outside.

She said “They grabbed me by the neck and pulled me on the floor. They then started kicking me everywhere, including my head. No-one was around to help me.

“They tried to steal my phone but then stopped and ran off onto the main road.

“I ran in the opposite direction and my friends called the police. It was a terrifying incident and I won’t go outside now.”
