The woman was in bed at her home on Cartmell Drive when she heard a disturbance outside in the early hours on Sunday (Oct 17).

The 34-year-old woman, who does not want to be named, said she went outside in her pyjamas and was punched and had some of her hair pulled out.

Footprints can clearly be seen on the woman's badly damaged car.

The woman's 36-year-old partner suffered a broken jaw in the attack and his friend - a 33-year-old man - suffered cuts and bruises.

Police said the two men had been in the nearby Halton Moor Social Club shortly before the assault.

The woman said the incident involved around eight men and two women.

Her car was attacked and the rear window was smashed.

Footprints can be seen on a badly damaged rear passenger door, which appears to have been repeatedly kicked.

The woman said someone also kicked the back door and window at her house.

She said: "I had been in bed and I came out because I heard they were beating my partner.

"They were very aggressive without any reason. They were drunk. They didn't want to listen or anything, they just attacked."

She said: "One kid was with them and he was watching everything. He was maybe nine or 10."

The woman added: "It was very scary and horrendous. The police came and the street was closed all night.
