Police appeal for information after unprovoked attack in Tameside
Main article content
Officers are looking for information to help locate an offender described as a white female, mid 20s with dark hair, a slim build and approximately 5’6” in height.
The victim, a 32-year-old female was walking home along Market Street, Stalybridge in the direction of Melbourne Street on Sunday 10 July 2022 at around 3am.
Approaching a building named Cosmo Bingo, the female came close to a group of people who were stood on the pavement. In what was an unprovoked attack, it is believed a female from that group struck the victim in the face, causing two fractures to the cheek bone which were treated at Tameside Hospital before a report was made later in the week.
Investigator Darren Byrne of GMP’s Tameside branch, said; “Although enquiries are ongoing and CCTV footage is still being sought, we are keen for anyone who may have witnessed what happened or have dashcam footage around that time that could be useful in identifying further who the offender was.
“This is a serious unprovoked attack that has caused considerable and understandable distress to the victim, and we would like to help bring some form of closure to the incident with the help of the public.”
Anyone who has information should contact police as soon as possible on 101 quoting incident 2226 of the 14th or alternatively direct at 0161 856 9335.
