A woman was attacked from behind by a man on Furber Road at about 9.30pm on Wednesday, November 28.

A police spokesman said the woman parked her car on Furber Road and was walking down towards Bryant's Hill. As she approached the junction, a man attacked her from behind. He was disturbed when a car turned into the street and he ran off, up Furber Road. The victim sustained no serious assault, but is now being supported by specialist officers.

An investigation is being led by Detective Inspector Mike Buck of the city's Operation Bluestone. "I would urge residents and anyone who may have been in the area to think back to last night," he said.

"Did you see the attack? Did you see a man running away from the scene? Did you see anybody hanging around the area before the incident?

"If you have any information no matter how small I would urge you to come forward."

Officers are keen to speak to a man who is described as white, around 6ft, with dark hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a dark jumper, jeans and gloves. He was wearing a dark beanie hat and had a scarf covering his face.

DI Buck added: "Significant resources are being focused in area, patrols have been increased and Neighbourhood Sergeant Darren Warr has spent the day with local residents, discussing their concerns and ensuring that everything is being done to ensure local people are safe.

"I would urge everyone to take the usual safety advice and avoid walking alone at night where possible. If you become concerned to dial 999."
