Witham: Police appeal for witnesses to alleyway assault
1:22pm Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
Police are appealing for witnesses to identify an “angry man” in connection with an assault.
A 19-year-old woman was forcefully pushed in an alleyway in Hatfield Road, Witham, opposite the fire service training centre.
The victim was walking out of the alleyway as an unknown man walked towards her.
When the pair met in the middle and the victim tried to get around him, the man pushed her in the chest with both hands, causing her to go backwards into the road.
The man then raised his fist as if he was going to hit the victim.
The incident took place between 8.35am and 8.40am on Tuesday, September 3.
The suspect is described as white, in his mid-30s, about 5ft 10in tall, wearing work overalls and with a black and red rucksack over his shoulder.
He had dark hair pulled back in a ponytail and looked grubby “like a mechanic”.
Police have spoken to one witness, who was unable to identify the man.
PC Kim Jones said: "There were other people in the street at the time and I am trying to find other witnesses to help identify this man, or anyone who knows who he is from the description."
Anyone who can help is asked to call PC Kim Jones at Braintree police station on 101.
