Woman assaulted during Craig David set

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses after a 24-year-old woman was assaulted in an incident at Newbury race course.

At around 6.30pm on Saturday (21/7) the victim was near to the steps of the grandstand next to the betting totes when a man kneed her in the groin. The victim did not require hospital treatment, but suffered intense pain as a result of the attack. It’s believed the assault would have been witnessed by a number of people, but nobody has yet come forward.

A 54-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of common assault and was released under investigation.

Investigating officer PC Will Smith, based at Newbury police station, said: “Unfortunately, no witnesses have contacted police, but this happened in a very busy part of the race course. “I am particularly keen to speak to a female witness, who is in her mid-twenties, blond and wearing a light flowery dress, as she was seen speaking to the victim. “Given the venue and the time of day, I am hopeful that many people would have witnessed the assault, and I would urge them to contact 101, quoting reference number 43180223221."
