Police investigate assault in Cullompton

Alert message sent 07/05/2020 10:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police

Description of suspect released
Police were called at 8.50pm on Tuesday 5 May to the Lower Mill Lane area of Cullompton following reports of an assault.
It was reported that the victim was grabbed by an unknown suspect who assaulted her to the head. She sustained minor injuries and was able to make her way to safety.
Police units including a dog and police helicopter attended the area to search for the suspect and enquiries remain ongoing at this time.
Detective Inspector Dave Pebworth said: “Based on the information currently available to us, this appears to be an unprovoked incident involving a man not known to the victim. At the moment we are working to establish the full circumstances and our enquiries remain ongoing to locate the suspect. 
“The suspect is described as a white male, around 6ft 1ins tall, with a dark beard and was believed to be wearing a grey t-shirt. I’d appeal for anyone who saw a male matching this description in the Lower Mill Lane area yesterday evening to contact police.”
Further enquires will be carried out in the area today and residents in the local community will see an increased police presence during that time.
Anyone who witnessed the incident and anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting log 694 5/5/20.
