We’re appealing for information and witnesses to an assault in Marshgate, Doncaster.

On Sunday 11 June between 12pm and 1pm, the victim, a 19-year-old woman, was walking along the riverbank of the River Don, next to HMP Doncaster, when she was approached by a man.

It is reported the man punched her in the ribs and pulled her by the hair, before pushing her to the floor. The victim did not suffer any injuries during the assault.

Officers are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the assault to come forward and speak to them. They are particularly keen to hear from two men who tried to intervene and help the victim.

A 22-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault has been released on police bail while enquiries continue.

If you have any information that could help, please call us. You can ring 101 quoting crime reference number 14/107712/23 or submit a report online.
