POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman was assaulted shortly after leaving a club in Soham.

The incident happened just after midnight (January 14) in Churchgate Street.

The 51-year-old victim from Soham was walking home from the Comrades Club when she noticed a man walking on the opposite side of the road. The man ran across the road and attacked her.

The attacker is described as white, 25 to 30, 5ft 8inchs, slim and wearing a black cap, a plain dark hooded top and black jogging bottoms which had three stripes on each leg from the knee.

Detective Sergeant Phill Richardson, investigating, said: “This was a particularly nasty ordeal for a woman who had been enjoying a social evening with friends and was on her way home.

“I would like to speak to anyone who might know this man, or perhaps saw him earlier in the area.”
