Humberside Police: Witness appeal after female assaulted
September 25, 2012, 7:10 am
A 19-year-old Hull woman was assaulted after disembarking a bus outside the Halfway public house on Springbank West at approximately 2145hrs on Sunday 23 September.
The woman was walking along the footpath and turned left onto Albert Avenue when she heard footsteps behind her.
Someone then grabbed her from behind and put both arms round her shoulders.
Nothing was said to the woman and the person behind her continued walking forward whilst still holding onto the victim.
At this point the woman punched backwards and connected with the suspect who let go and walked away.
At no point was anything said to the woman nor did she see the suspect until she looked over her shoulder after the suspect had walked off.
The description of offender is vague due to the circumstances and also the lighting on the street. He is said to be a man, of medium build and wearing dark clothing and black gloves. His top was a cotton type black jumper and he wore his hood up. The victim did not see his face at all.
The victim was not hurt but she was shaken by the incident and police want to speak to anyone who might have seen anything suspicious.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Humberside Police on the non emergency number 101 referring to log number 773 of 23 September or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
