Police appeal after blind lady assaulted in South Gloucestershire

Police are appealing for witnesses and information after an apparently unprovoked attack on a 41-year-old blind lady in Staple Hill, South Gloucestershire.

It happened at about 7.55am on Tuesday 13 March. The woman had caught a bus at the Soundwell Road/Portland Street stop, at about 7.45am.

She left the bus at about 7.55am at the end of Soundwell Road, near Page Road car park.

Just after she got off she was assaulted by an unknown suspect who punched her several times in the torso and laughed before running off.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who was travelling along Soundwell Road at around 8am on Tuesday morning, especially anyone who may have travelled on the same bus.

The person responsible for this unacceptable assault would have been aware of this lady’s visual impairment.

She was left with bruising after the attack and has understandably been left shaken and distressed by the incident. I’d ask anyone who can help our investigation to get in touch.
