Derby detectives release CCTV footage of city centre assault

Posted on 1st August 2017

One of our detectives has released CCTV footage of a city centre assault and is asking for help in identifying those involved. 

The incident happened at around 11pm on the evening of Thursday, June 29 when a 17 year-old victim was subject of an assault on St Peter’s Street, Derby. 

He suffered a cut mouth, bruising and swelling to his head above the left eye. 

DC Nikita Devney, who is investigating the incident, said: “Since the incident we have been working hard to identify suspects.

“We have now released CCTV footage of the incident and are asking for help to identify those involved.

“One of those highlighted in the footage is a young woman in a white dress. I need to stress that she is not suspected as being an offender, in fact she is instrumental in stopping the incident and tries hard to prevent the victim being subject of further assault. However it seems clear that she may have information as to those involved and as such I would like to speak to her.” 

If you think you can help, please call Nikita on 101 quoting reference number 17000275662.
