1 Nov 2016

A woman was assaulted after going to the aid of a man who was being targeted by a group of youths in Hull.

The incident happened between 4.10pm and 4.30pm on Saturday, October 15, in Londesborough Street – and officers investigating are now keen to speak to the man, who could be a key witness.

The 26-year-old victim, who was with her mum and two children, was walking towards the shopping precinct when she saw the group allegedly behaving in a threatening manner towards the man – who is believed to be of Indian origin.

She went over to intervene, but was assaulted by one of the girls, who is believed to be around 15-years-old.

The man officers wish to speak to accompanied the victim to St Stephen’s shopping centre, which he is said to visit regularly.

He is described as being in his late 50s to early 60s, with very short dark hair, which was greying. He is around 5ft 6in tall and wore a blue jacket and white baggy trousers.

He spoke very little English and said he had only been in the country for a short time.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or who believes they may know the identity of the man, is asked to call 101 quoting crime reference number 2222053.
