The victim, a woman aged in her 40s, was reported to have been assaulted by a group of teenagers who threw flour and eggs over her after a row in St Olaves Road. They can be seen mocking the woman covered in the mixture sitting on a bench in the park.
The woman, who police have described as vulnerable, said she was anxious about heightening tensions on the 1960s Howard Estate in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, where she lives.
An elderly resident who didn't want to be named said, "I avoid the park at certain times because they gather there at 5pm and do drugs and drink alcohol".
"Considering the respective ages of all parties and that it was five or six young men versus me alone, I remain surprised that they have behaved in such a way towards me".
"It was not a pleasant experience and the limit of what I can publicly tolerate, however, I have no wish to escalate current tensions".Читайте также: School superintendent accused of repeatedly pooping on high school track resigns
Suffolk Constabulary announced this afternoon that a fifth person - a 15-year-old boy - was arrested yesterday on suspicion of common assault.
The shocking images led to appeals for naming and shaming the teens as police arrested two 17-year-olds and two 15-year-olds who were released on bail.
Acting Det Supt Barry Byford said: "This is a live investigation and we do not support vigilantism in any way, shape or form".
"We know this incident may have caused concern and anger both in the local community and online, but we'd like to reassure everyone we're tackling the matter robustly and supporting the victim".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
