A woman in her 20s has been sexually assaulted in Bristol.

The victim was attacked from behind in Henry Street, Totterdown, on Monday 12 November at 9.45pm.

This was a frightening ordeal for the victim and I’d like to reassure the local community that a full investigation is already under way.

During the incident, the victim fought back, resulting in the offender running off, but as she didn’t see her attacker she hasn’t been able to give us a description.

– Det Insp Dave Lewis

Officers are carrying out extra patrols in Totterdown to reassure the community. They are also asking anyone who may have been in the area, particularly at two pubs nearby, if they witnessed anything.

Four people have been arrested in connection with an attack on a 16 year old in Midsomer Norton.

The teenager was left fighting for his life in hospital after he was stabbed in the early hours of Saturday morning. He is now in a stable condition according to Avon and Somerset Police.

For much of Saturday, Excelsior Terrace in the town was cordoned off while detectives investigated the incident.

Four men; a 17-year-old, two 18-year-olds and a 20-year-old have been arrested in the Radstock area on suspicion of attempted murder.

Officers are also trying to trace mobile phone footage of the assault as police believe a number of people were in the area at the time who may have filmed the incident.

Anyone with any information should call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.
