We’re investigating two incidents which happened in Taunton on Saturday (December 17), which we’re treating as linked.
The first incident happened in Mountway Road/Gipsy Lane at just after 3.30pm. A number of males on bicycles approached a woman who was walking along the road, and removed her hat, pulling her hair in the process.
A short time later, in Castle Green, a man challenged a group of males on bicycles, resulting in one of them threatening him with a knife. We’re keeping an open mind as to whether this was the same group involved in the earlier offence.
No-one was injured in either of the incidents.
We’re appealing to anyone who witnessed either offence to come forward. If you can help, please call us.
