Jersey Police are appealing for witnesses following an alleged assault in St Helier on Thursday night.

A man and woman got into a row on Dorset Street at around 9pm on Thursday 20 October.

The man is alleged to have assaulted the woman by spitting in her face before a member of the public in a nearby pub intervened and the man left the area.

He is described as having dark hair and was wearing a black t-shirt, black jeans and black/grey Nike trainers.

The woman is about 5'7 tall with shoulder-length blonde hair, which was partially tied in a top knot.

A 19-year-old male was later arrested for domestic common assault but has since been released on bail.

Police are asking anybody who saw the incident or who has any information to contact them on 01534 612612 or by contacting Crimestoppers anonymously.
