An elderly woman has sustained a fractured hip after a violent assault in Hartley Wintney

The 71-year-old was pushed to the ground after three men ran towards her in Hazeley Heath on Wednesday evening. 

It happened sometime between 4.30pm and 5.30pm. 

One of the three people turned around and pushed the woman, causing her to fall to the ground.

He demanded keys to a quad bike that was parked nearby.
