Wow that narrows it down with the red shirt because nobody else where's red shirts!!
Hope the female in question is fine though and not too shaken. This happens too regular in Barnsley and by the time police arrive the suspects usually miles away, either that or police drive with their eyes closed like the one I saw earlier sat on her mobile playing Pokemon
