PC Charlie Marshall, investigating, said: "It was initially thought that the victim had sustained internal bleeding and a ruptured spleen, but thankfully a hospital scan showed no internal injuries. However, she still suffered reddening and bruising to her abdomen as well as being left shaken up.

"I am appealing for anyone who was in the area and saw what happened to get in touch. If you have any other information about the incident I would also like to hear from you.
