Female assaulted by two youths

A 40-year-old female has been assaulted after she opened her door to a small child before two older youths appeared and attacked her before running off.

The victim was reportedly attacked in Gertrude Street at around 4:45am on Saturday morning.

The two older youths approached and pushed her against the wall where she sustained a graze and bruising to her face.

She didn’t get a description of the offenders, except to say they were wearing hoodies.

Geraldton Police encourage residents to be cautious of unknown visitors and report any incidents straight away, so a co-ordinated response can be immediately commenced.
