‘Knocked me out twice whilst saying “just because you’re a women [sic] doesn’t mean I won’t f**k you up”.’
Yasmin revealed how the man who she rejected 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’.
She continued: ‘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.’
Despite her injuries, Yasmin returned to work like a trooper and presenting her Heart Radio show on Sunday afternoon before hosting a screening of Tom Hanks’ new movie Elvis.

She shared a photo of herself all glammed up while standing with a crutch. The radio star told her followers that she would likely take a few days to recuperate and process what happened.
Explaining her decision to get back to work, Yasmin told her followers after the event: ‘Hey loves, I thought about taking some time off the next few days and maybe I will at some point but tonight I hosted a premiere with a beautiful cast & crew including Tom Hanks, Baz Lurhmann (fan girl), Austin Butler and Olivia DeJonge, it was such a great conversation, even Tom Hanks took the time to big me up.
‘Crutch and I are taking ourselves to bed but before I do I just want to say I am so incredibly blown away and emotional about your support.
‘A million thank yous aren’t enough. I’m hoping some updates follow and in the meantime your words & love mean a lot.’
