A pregnant mother was kicked and punched in the head by two women after her toddler got into an argument with another child in a playground.

The 27-year-old was with her two-year-old child in Lloyd Park, Forest Road, Walthamstow, on Saturday evening when the attack happened.

Her boyfriend, who declined to give his name, claims the victim had her hair pulled out and the back of her head stomped on after being knocked to the ground.

A spokesman for the Met said: “Police were called at 6.55pm on Saturday, August 4 to reports of an assault in Lloyd Park, Forest Road, E17.

“Officers attended and found the victim, aged in her 20s, suffering from minor injuries.

“The victim was at the park with her child who had gotten into an argument with another child in the playground.

“The victim approached two women who were with the other child to speak about the argument.

“The women started shouting at the victim, so the victim walked away.

“One of the women then approached the victim and threw water over her. Both women then pushed the victim to the floor and attacked her before leaving the scene.

“The victim did not require medical treatment.”
