Appeal Following Assault in Kingston Park in Portsmouth

Published: 5th October 2017 18:25

Police are carrying out enquiries after an assault took place in Kingston Park close to Byerley Road in Fratton on Wednesday 4 October. 

At 12.30pm a 52-year-old man was involved in a verbal disagreement with a woman who had been cycling through the park. She had shouted at an elderly man walking his dog.

The victim was subsequently assaulted by the woman and a man who was with her following the disagreement. They ran off afterwards. 

The 52 year-old victim was left with cuts and grazes to his head and bruising to his ribs.

A 32 year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm with intent in connection with this assault. She has been released from custody without charge, but remains under investigation. 

Police say they would like to hear from the man who was walking his Jack Russell Terrier in the park at the time, who spoke to the victim. Anyone else who witnessed the assault should also contact police.

Anyone who saw what happened is asked to call DC Lucia Davies at Fratton Police Station on 101 quoting 44170384568. Alternatively they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
