A teenage mum has been hospitalised after allegedly being brutally beaten in Colwyn Bay.
Tia Jade Edwards, a 17-year-old college student, was admitted to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd after the alleged attack left her with a broken nose and possible damage to her eye.
A family member said the teenager was in a “terrible state” when police were called to an address in Colwyn Bay after the alleged attack, which is believed to have taken place before 10pm on Friday.
The relative said Tia, who is said to be extremely upset and at home recovering with relatives, could require further hospital treatment.
She may need surgery on a broken nose and there are concerns about her eye socket and teeth.
Tia has an eight-month-old daughter who was staying with relatives at the time.
The family say a man has been arrested following the incident, but North Wales Police have yet to confirm the arrest.
In July last year, Tia made national headlines after she was attacked at a house party in Abergele.
No charges were made in relation to that incident after the Crown Prosecution Service said there was not enough evidence to provide a “realistic prospect of conviction”.
But the shocking pictures of the teenager’s injuries sparked a furious reaction from readers who called for justice for Tia.
