A WOMAN has been attacked in an alleyway during an altercation with a man she knew.

The victim was assaulted in a domestic-related incident in a passage between Plassey Road and Zouch Avenue, Tidworth, between 9.30pm and 10.30pm on Saturday (January 26).

Police are now appealing for witnesses and are particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw the man and woman.

DC Matthew Cable, from Salisbury Public Protection Department at Wiltshire Police, said: “The victim has told us that a number of people walked by during the assault, but the incident may not have initially looked suspicious to a passer-by.

“If you were in the area at the time and witnessed any kind of altercation or argument between a man and a woman, please come forward and speak to us.”

A man has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.

Anyone with information should call DC Cable on 101, quoting crime reference 54190008957, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
