A woman was punched in the face after being grabbed by two men on a popular St Albans footpath last week.
Herts Police are appealing for information about the attack, which happened at about 5.10pm on June 8 along the Alban Way, near Charrington Place.
The victim, who is in her 20s, managed to run away after she was hit.
One of her assailants was white, aged between 18 and 22, 5ft 5ins, stocky, wearing a dark blue tracksuit, and sporting short blond hair with a distinctive lighting bolt possibly shaved into it.
The other man was black, also aged between 18 and 22, about 6ft, slim, wearing a dark blue tracksuit, and carrying a black Nike bag.
Investigating Det Con Tony Kong said: “The victim was understandably left shaken by her ordeal but thankfully she was not injured.
“This is an area that is often busy with foot traffic so I am appealing for anyone who may have seen what happened or has seen two men matching the description in the area to get in touch.”
