The woman suspected of the assault was covered in green body paint and had dyed red hair.

She is white, aged in her late teens or early twenties, around 5 feet 8 inches tall and of medium build.

PC Cheryl Hunter, of York police, said:

"This appears to have been a wholly unprovoked assault. Thankfully the injuries were not too severe. However, the outcome could have been far more serious.

"If you witnessed the assault or can identify the woman I need to speak to about this incident, I ask that you contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away."

Anyone who has any information that could help the police is being asked to contact York police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Cheryl Hunter, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
