Heart Radio presenter Yasmin Evans has returned to work after sharing the horrific details of a brutal assault that left her ‘knocked out cold twice’.
The shocking incident happened on Friday night as the 31-year-old was walking towards Liverpool Street station in London to get a train home with a friend.
Yasmin, a former BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ, revealed how one man grabbed her arm before arguing and proceeded to ‘punch [her] in the face’. She was reportedly hit with such force that it ‘knocked me out cold twice along with the person I was with’.
Sharing the harrowing ordeal in her Instagram stories, the presenter wrote: ‘Three black guys and a guy who was mixed race all punched and kicked me while I was on the ground.
‘Knocked me out twice whilst saying “just because you’re a women [sic] doesn’t mean I won’t f**k you up”.’
She added: ‘I’ve called the police but if anyone was on Liverpool Street and saw anything please contact me… Like I said one mixed race guy, three black guys one of them with short dreads tied back in a bobble that were dipped dyed blonde. I would appreciate your help at around 1:00am in London.’

After being bombarded with support, Yasmin later told her followers: ‘Still quite shocked but we are okay, injuries may take a little healing but we are good, a crutch is a great accessory at the moment.
‘I would really like to figure this out in some way, the Police have been very supportive.

In another update, Yasmin revealed two witnesses have since reached out to her after seeing the brutal attack.
On Sunday, she returned to work at her Heart Radio show and said: ‘Hobbled here. Game face (voice) on.’
