Appeal for witnesses following assault in Portsmouth

We are appealing for witnesses after a woman was assaulted in Portsmouth yesterday afternoon (Sunday 3 July).


It was reported to us that between 3.45pm and 4pm, a woman was pushed from a moving vehicle on Anglesea Road, close to the university buildings.


The woman, who is in her 40s, was taken to hospital with injuries to her arm. She has since been discharged.


Officers attended and arrested a 42-year-old man from East Sussex on suspicion of wounding/inflicting grievous bodily harm.


He has been released from custody on conditional police bail while our enquiries continue.


As part of our investigation into this incident, we would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened.


Perhaps you were travelling through the area at the time and have dash cam footage that may assist our enquiries?


Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting 44220265116. Alternatively, go online and submit information via the following form: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/
