Newbury Berkshire: Women assaulted in Thatcham

Women assaulted in Thatcham

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information after an assault in Thatcham.
A 38-year-old woman was walking along Priors Court Road in Hermitage at about 10pm on Friday (27/5) when the incident happened. As she went to cross the road, she was grabbed by an unknown man from behind.
The woman managed to break free and ran towards the village and called the police.
PC Alex Marshall said: “This is an isolated incident and thankfully the woman wasn’t seriously injured.
“Although she didn’t see her victim very well, we know that he was a white man and that he was more than 5ft 6ins tall.
“I would ask that anyone who was in that area of Hermitage on the night, who may have seen or heard anything in connection to this incident, to come forward and speak to me immediately.”
Anyone with information should contact PC Marshall via the 24-hour Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 0845 8 505 505. Alternatively, you can contact the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
