Witnesses sought following assault in Attleborough

Detectives are investigating an assault which happened in Attleborough at the weekend.

The incident happened between 12.30pm and 12.55pm on Saturday 23 September as the female victim was walking along Brays Lane, near to the junction of Magpie Lane, heading out of Rocklands.

The male driver of a black Renault Clio has stopped, before getting out and assaulting the woman by hitting her in the face. He has then returned to the vehicle and reversed the car, which has collided with the victim.

The suspect has then fled from the scene.

The woman sustained minor injuries and was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment.

A man, aged in his late 20s, was arrested shortly after in connection with the incident and taken into police custody for questioning. He has since been bailed until 19 October 2017 pending further enquiries.

Officers are still keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident, in particular any vehicle that drove past the victim following the collision.

Witnesses should contact Detective Constable Jill McAndie at Norwich CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
