A woman has been threatened by two teenage boys, who then went on to smash the back window of her car in Harrogate.

At around 6.10pm on Saturday (25 January), the woman was parking her car on Strawberry Dale Terrace, just off Franklin Road in Harrogate, when she was approached by two boys.

As she was just about to get out of her navy Mini, one of the boys shouted at her to get out of the car and the other showed her that he was carrying a baton in his hand.
