POLICE are investiating after three people were treated for injuries after being attacked by a group who had been driving a car erratically in the Clon Daragh area of Derry.
When two women, both in their 20s, challenged the way the silver Audi A3 was being driven, its six occupants set upon them, police said.
A man in his 30s was assaulted when he tried to intervene, police said.
One woman is being treated for serious facial wounds caused by broken glass.
PSNI Foyle say: “We are investigating an incident in the Clon Daragh area on Saturday during which a group of people attacked two women and a man at around 1.50pm.
“We believe the six assailants were travelling in a silver Audi A3 which was being driven erratically in the area.
“When the two female victims, who are both in their 20s, challenged the manner of the driving, the occupants of the Audi exited the vehicle and set upon their car, a Seat Toledo.
“A male in his 30s attempted to intervene and was also assaulted by the group before all six attackers left the area in the Audi.
“All three victims were treated for their injuries with one woman having sustained facial wounds due to broken glass.
“If you can help our investigation, please call us on 101.”
Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy said the women had acted “very bravely” before the attack, which happened on Saturday at about 1.50 pm.
“It seems a silver car was driving erratically in the area, the two women, who were in another car, stopped the car and the men proceeded to come out of their car and attack.”
There had been a number road safety issues in the Skeoge area, added Ms Duffy.
“We have noticed over recent-years this road is being used as a racetrack by boy racers.
“We have had issues in the past around death-driving (joy riding) in the area, those issues have dissipated over recent months and we absolutely don’t want to see that returning,” the councillor added.
