Police are appealing for information and witnesses after a woman in her 50s was assaulted in St Albans.

The assault is reported to have happened in the Blacksmiths Arms pub in St Peter’s Street at around 9pm on Sunday, March 17.

A woman was allegedly assaulted by a man known to her, which caused a verbal fight to break out between the suspect and another man.

Det Con Aaron Golley, who is investigating, said: “I am appealing for anyone who might have seen what happened to get in touch so we can get a fuller picture of what occurred.

“If you can help, please get in contact on the non-emergency number 101 or through email at aaron.golley@herts.pnn.police.uk, quoting crime reference 41/25066/19.”
