Mum of one was out in Bolton when things turned ugly
It started out as a quiet drink in a pub with a friend and ended in a unprovoked attack that left Helen Wood with two black eyes and deep cuts and bruises last week.
Still shaken, 24-year-old Helen says: ‘A crowd started chanting: “Rooney, Rooney!”
‘I was hit in the head, kicked in the ribs and a girl stabbed her heel in my nose.
‘My face was dripping with blood. It felt like an awful dream.’
Police are currently investigating the fight at Bolton’s Victoria Inn.
Helen says: ‘Would Wayne get his face smashed? No.
‘Nothing I’ve done merited that.’
