Two women were attacked by a man at a taxi rank in Poulton, causing one of them to suffer a “dislocated jaw”.

 

A fight broke out after a man and woman were challenged when they reportedly attempted to skip the queue at the taxi rank in Ball Street.

A man pushed a woman and punched another in the face during the altercation, causing one of the victims to suffer a “dislocated jaw”.

The shocking attack occurred at around 1am on Sunday, October 3, police said.
