Alert message sent 16/01/2020 11:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

We are investigating an incident which occurred in Corsham last night. (15/01)

A woman in her 30s was walking along Park Lane at approximately 10.50pm when she was assaulted by two men who pushed her to the ground. The woman sustained bruising to her legs during the assault.

It is not known in which direction the men left the scene. 

The first man is described as white, of medium build and aged around 30. He was wearing a hoody and had a goatee.

The second man is described as white, of medium build and younger than the first man. He was also wearing a hoody and had a woolly hat on. 

Det Insp Tom Straker said: "This was understandably a very frightening incident for the victim, who fortunately, did not suffer any serious physical injury during the incident but is very shaken and upset.

"The incident happened in a fairly residential area so those living nearby should expect to see an increased police presence in the area today as we continue with our investigation which will include extensive house-to-house enquiries.

"We'd like to speak to anyone who was in the area around this time, including anyone who was driving past who may have dash cam footage which could significantly help us identify those involved."

Call 101 and quote crime reference number 54200005087 if you can help. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
