POLICE are investigating after a gang of teenagers allegedly pushed a woman to the floor then punched and kicked her in Launceston.

The woman, in her 40s, was pushed to the ground and punched and kicked by the teenagers. She suffered minor injuries.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident and would like to hear from anyone who saw the offenders in the area, particularly in Hurdon Way.
