Passengers on a bus bound for Carlton may have information that could help police with their investigations after a teenager was put into an ‘induced coma’following a serious assault in the city centre.

The 18-year-old woman was reportedly punched several times outside the Victoria Centre in Parliament Street on Tuesday, February 20 at around 8pm.

Following the assault she then got onto the number 27 bus to Carlton but was followed onto the bus by the same group of women who were threatening and abusive towards her before they got off.

The victim was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre where she remains in an induced coma.

Detective Sergeant Kayne Rukas, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We know there were a lot of people walking in the street and standing at the bus stop at the time of the assault who may have information that could help us with our investigation.

“There were also a lot of people on the bus who may be able to help us with our inquiries.

“The victim is now very unwell and in a serious condition in hospital. We’re urging anyone with any information about the assaults to please get in touch with us.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 325 of 21 February 2018, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
