Attempted robbery

Beverley: Are you couple who went to woman's aid?

30 Dec 2017

Did you go to the aid of a woman in Cherry Tree Lane, Beverley, last night?

We want to speak to a couple walking their dog who frightened off a group of youths who were attempting to rob a woman close to the junction with Knights Way.

The woman was confronted by the group of 17-18 year-olds  at around 7.05pm, who surrounded her and demanded money and her mobile phone, before assaulting her, injuring her face.

The group fled empty handed when the dog walkers responded to her cry for help.

All of them wore dark coloured hoodies and had local accents.

We would now like to speak to the couple – or anyone else with information about the incident.

If you can help, please call 101 quoting crime reference number 16/73685/17.
