The assault took place in St Olaves Road around 5.30 pm on Friday, and has spurred fury on social media after an alleged photo of the incident was published.

According to a police spokesman, a woman in her 60’s was attacked by a group of teenagers, who tossed flour and eggs over her following a verbal dispute.

“The woman was severely distressed by the incident but was physically unharmed,” the police spokesman added.

A 17-year-old boy, who was arrested on Friday, and two 15-year-old boys, detained on Saturday, have been released on bail pending further queries.

Another 17-year-old boy, who was apprehended in connection with the egging overnight on Saturday and taken into custody for questioning, has too been released on bail.

St Olaves ward counsellor, Paul Hopfensperger, said he ‘could not sleep’ after catching wind of the attack.

“I would like to say that I, like everyone, was totally shocked to hear of this assault on the woman in my ward.” said Hopfensperger.

“I am totally shocked, I’ve never seen anything like it before.

“I was out celebrating my son’s birthday when I heard about it.

“That night I couldn’t sleep thinking about it. “It happened right outside the community center, the whole thing is just awful for the area.

“I sincerely hope that lady is okay.

“The police have done an excellent job and the public’s response has been excellent.

“Hopefully we won’t have something like this happen up there ever again.”

Mr Hopfensperger added he would be addressing the issue at the upcoming residents’ meeting.

Inspector Anthony Bridgland spoke: “This type of behavior is totally unacceptable and we are treating the matter seriously. We know this incident may have caused concern and anger both in the local community and online but we would like to reassure everyone that we are tackling the matter robustly and supporting the victim.”
