Witness appeal after schoolgirl suffers minor injuries in Acomb assault

York police are appealing for information after a schoolgirl was physically assaulted in the city.

It occurred at around 3.45pm on Friday 31 January 2014, as she walked along Viking Road, Acomb, close to the junction for Jute Road.

The 12-year-old girl was grabbed around the waist from behind by a man she did not recognise. When he let go, she fell to the ground causing a slight injury to one of her knees. The suspect then headed towards Jute Road.

A 51-year-old York man was arrested on Saturday 1 February 2014, suspicion of common assault. He has been released on bail to allow for further police enquiries.

PC Lauren McGillivray, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you witnessed the assault I urge you to come forward straight away as you may have vital information which could assist my investigation.”

Anyone who can help officers with this enquiry should contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Lauren McGillivray. Alternatively, information can be emailed to [email protected]

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12140016624.
