Basildon Recorder: Couple chased and attacked by gang of 15 teens in Pitsea Couple chased and attacked by gang of 15 teens in Pitsea

A MIDDLE aged couple were chased through the streets of Pitsea by a gang of about 15 teens.

The 39-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman were walking in Hartford End at about 11pm on Friday when they were approached by a group of young men and women who started punching and kicking the man.

The couple ran and were pursued through Pitsea market, past Aldi.

Both continued to be assaulted with the man being the main target for the group.

At one point the man was struck by a supermarket trolley thrown by one of the group.

He was also hit over the back of the head with what was thought to be a metal bar.

The suspects eventually gave up the assault and ran off at Church Road.

Investigating officer Pc Lee Ryan said that one of the main attackers was white, aged about 17, about 5ft 11in and of slim build.

He had, short wavy fair coloured hair, and was wearing dark jeans and no top.

He he was referred to by members of the group as "Paddy”

A young woman among the group was white aged about 16, about 5ft 2in tall and of, chubby build.

She had shoulder length wavy brown hair with blonde streaks, tied up in a ponytail.

She was wearing light blue jeans and a bright orange woollen jumper.

She was suspected of pulling the female victim's hair, forcing her to fall to the ground.

Anyone with information should contact Pc Ryan at Basildon Neighbourhood Crime Team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Not enough policing no wonder these things happen.The cops are either sitting in their cars on the A13 behind bush's waiting to grab some unsuspecting fella travelling 5 miles over the speed limit or blocking off a road for no reason whatsoever. Get more bobbies on the streets and out of their cars and helicopters and perhaps we will see these animals caught and charged.In the meantime stay off the streets at nights more so now that the lighting is being turned off. Whats that all about.??

It's all tit for tat with you isn't it?

You're the biggest racist around here. You and your leftie friends are fascists.

When was the last time you had a wash? I saw your mates last night on TV. HNH and UAF out in force, all looking like they need hosing down with carbolic. Usual band of scruffs. Bullying hatemongers, violent, bigoted and nasty. Like you.

You lefties are on the back foot right now and you don't like the fact that you are about to get a **** good pasting. You've had far too much to say for far too long and those days are coming to an an end. Realism is taking over at long last.

Political correctness and fascists like you telling the rest of us what to say, do and think are soon to be history.

Live with it.

Thirty nine and 41 are hardly middle aged unless this is the Echo's attempt to make them sound vulnerable.

Whether they upset this bunch of yobs or not is irrelevant.. Thugs chasing people through the streets and beating them up is totally out of order.

But all this is down to the 13 years of loony left values inflicted upon us by Labour, who think everybody except decent law abiding citizens are entitled to "human rights".

Obviously, being the age they are, they were dragged up under the leftwing regime that embraces yobbism by rewarding and excusing it.

You only have to look at the local Labour group to see those values. They are the biggest proponents of them.

Bullying, shouting and bawling, hectoring, talking down opponents, gesticulating at the public, making slit throat signs at their betters in meetings and forcefully imposing their views and intimidating voters on the doorstep.

You have yet to explain how Im a racist bigot

Why you were involved with a disgusting apartheid act against little children

What a 'non-political councillor is and what it entails

Whether you feel you would be passed as a school governor ever again...in any area

I wonder whether you can see the ridiculousness of ignoring a clear racial implication by a poster to call a poster replying in a non-racial way a 'racist bigot'

"You're the biggest racist around here"

This is a claim you have made twice on this thread, would you like to explain why?

If not, doesn't that just show how you make claims and then scarper when asked to explain them or give proof..YET you denigrate politicians for doing exactly what you do...

"When was the last time you had a wash?"

What a totally puerile question...the most important thing to you should be when did YOU last have a wash...it would seem all political parties and groups find you rather rank and odious..regardless of ideology they all seemingly agree on that...i believe.

"Realism is taking over at long last'
