Do you recognise these teenagers?

British Transport Police like to speak to them in connection with an assault that knocked a woman unconscious on the platform of Mossley rail station. 

The incident happened at around 8.40pm on May 5, when a woman approached a group of youths (between 10-15 years old) to ask them to stop throwing stones. 

After threatening to stab the woman and cut her throat, one of the youths pushed and shoved her, before knocking her unconscious by punching her in the face.

The youths then ran off after taking photos and videos of the motionless woman. 

She was later taken to hospital with a bruised jaw. 

Officers would like to speak to the men in these images as they believe they may be able to help them with their enquiries.
