Two teenage friends have been assaulted by a gang of youths in Turnham Green Terrace.

The vicious attack happened on Friday 6th January 2006 at 1845 as the two girls walking towards the underground station.

The victims, aged 15 and 14 years, were approached by a group of 7 people, 5 were male and 2 were female. The two females in the gang both had dogs in their control, believed to be Staffs or Pitbulls.

The victims were surrounded and pushed towards an alleyway nearby where both victims were forced to the ground and subjected to multiple punches, kicks and threats.

One of the victims was also bitten on the face by one of the aforementioned dogs before the suspects walked away from the scene in an unknown direction. It is not known whether the object of the attack was initially robbery.
