Posted on 31st July 2017

We’re appealing for witnesses following an allegation that a woman was assaulted in Chapel-en-le-Frith.

At around 4am on Saturday, July 15, a 19-year-old woman was walking along Hayfield Road at a secluded point where the A6 crosses over it.

A man in a red car stopped and offered her a lift home. She has told officers that when she refused, the man punched her in the face, leaving her with a black eye.

She has described him as white, 5ft 9ins tall and bald. He may have been wearing a light blue top.

She said the car was old and about the size of a Vauxhall Astra.

Witnesses or anyone with information should call PC Peter Burgess on 101, quoting reference 17000304719.
