AN investigation is underway after two teenage girls were attacked at an Isle of Wight bar.
The attack took place between 12.30am and 1.30am last Thursday at Yates, Newport, according to police.
A spokeswoman said: "Both teenagers were approached by an older woman who accused them of pushing into her.
"After an exchange of words they left the bar area and went to the ladies toilet. Shortly after this the same older woman accompanied by a friend came into the toilets and proceeded to assault both victims; who had their hair pulled, faces slapped and were left with visible scratches to their necks.
"The suspects were ejected from Yates shortly after this incident and flagged down a taxi near to the area."
The first suspect is described as a white woman with short dark hair, aged late 20s to early 30s, wearing a long sleeved white blouse with possibly a logo on the front.
She was 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall, skinny build with bad skin and wearing a lot of make up, in particular bright pink lipstick.
The second suspect is a white woman with long dark hair, aged late 20s to early 30s, skinny build, wearing a black long sleeved top.
Investigating officer, PC Kirsty Dunn said: "This is a violent unprovoked assault on two young women which left them both shaken and scared.
"I would be interested to hear from any person who may have witnessed the assault at Yates. In particular a woman who was present in the toilets at the time of the attack. I would urge this person to come forward.
"It has been suggested that the suspects took a taxi after the assault. It is imperative that if this is the case, that I hear from this taxi driver."
Anyone with information can contact PC Dunn at Newport Police Station by phoning 101. Information can be given anonymously by phoning the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
