Dog walker attacked in Bideford park

She is hit in face

A woman walking her dog in a Bideford park has been assaulted in broad daylight by two other women.

The victim was allegedly attacked around 9.15am on Saturday 26 June in Old Town Park, sustaining a cut lip and bruising to her face.

Police have just released an appeal for information. They are particularly keen to speak with two female drivers who may have witnessed the assault and stopped to help the victim and wait with her until the suspects left.

One of the drivers is thought to have been driving a red or burgundy Peugeot, had dark brown/ black shoulder length hair, was possibly in her thirties and was wearing a blue and white stripe top and a white skirt.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information that could help the police with their enquiries. Please email or call 101, quoting CR/053025/21.

Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or via the charity’s website at
