A woman jogger was left shaken after she was assaulted while out running.

The victim, in her 20s, was running along London Road in Markyate between 6.30-7pm on Monday, February 12 when an unknown man appeared beside her and pushed her over.

She fell to the ground and suffered a graze to her knee, but the man ran off towards the Plume of Feathers pub without making any threats or stealing any of her property.

PC Tom Colvin said: “Thankfully the woman wasn’t seriously injured but was left shaken by what happened.

“The incident occurred on a busy residential road so it is quite possible there would have been a number of people around at the time so I am appealing for anyone who saw what happened, or who thinks they may know the identity of the man, to please contact us.”

Anyone with information should call 101 and give crime reference D1/18/1379, or email tom.colvin@herts.pnn.police.uk
