Woman smashed in face with bottle by ‘scumbag’ gang after confronting yobs

A couple were battered by a gang they branded “scumbags” after they confronted the youths for driving around like “maniacs”.

Saoirse Smith and her girlfriend Hollie Semple, from Londonderry, were beaten by the gang in a horrific attack.

Smith suffered permanent scarring after a litre bottle was thrown at her face.

She had complained about youngsters driving like "maniacs" after the group nearly crashed into her near her home.

Hollie posted the horrific images of her partner’s bloody face online as police investigate the attack.

And she branded the thugs “scumbags” – saying a group of up to six youths attacked them.

Hollie wrote: “Myself and Saoirse were attacked by a group of four or five fellas and a girl after confronting them for almost crashing into us twice and then driving like absolute maniacs in a built up area full of children.

"They were driving at speed on the paths where children play (including our nephews).

"After confronting these scumbags I was attacked and then suddenly they all were on to me, punching, kicking, pulling my hair, spitting."

She added: "They turned on Saoirse after she tried to break it up.
