One of the drunken men attempted to inappropriately touch the 18-year-old’s chest. She threw her chips at him and both men violently grabbed her and swung her to the floor.
Rebecca was on her way home from a night out at Source Bar, she decided to stop by the nearest kebab shop by herself before getting a taxi home.
Rebecca said: “These group of men were shouting stuff at me saying they wanted to ‘take me home’.
“After ignoring them they started getting nasty.”
The rowdy men were verbally abusing Rebecca with phrases such as ‘slag’, and rude remarks such as ‘where’s your arse girl?’
After she confronted them, the two men physically assaulted her.
“He went to grab my boob, I threw my cheesy chips at his face… Next thing I know I’m being thrown to the ground by these 2 guys.”
