Derbyshire: Police appeal after woman sexually assaulted


Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a woman was sexually assaulted as she was walking home.

The 18-year-old victim was walking in a church yard off Church Street, near the Duke of Norfolk school, in Glossop, when she was assaulted by a man.

The victim suffered serious facial injuries in the incident, which took place at about 3am on Monday, May 26, and was later treated at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 130 of May 26.
