A man who intervened in a domestic incident in Chertsey on New Year’s Day and another man who assisted the woman involved have both come forward following a media appeal.
Surrey Police issued an appeal on Thursday, 3 January, following the incident two days earlier in Heriot Road, near the Sainsbury’s supermarket. The reported incident occurred at around 3.15am when, following a verbal argument between a man and a woman, the man is alleged to have thrown the woman’s phone on the ground, grabbed her by the hair and dragged her along the pavement causing minor injuries to her ankle and scalp.
Officers were keen to speak to a man who intervened and another two men who sat with the woman following the incident.
T/Detective Constable Barrington Goffe, investigating, said: “Two of these men have now come forward thanks to the media appeal. We would still like to speak to the third man and would urge him, or anyone who knows his identity, to get in touch.”
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference RM/13/6. Alternatively, information can be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
*A 49-year-old man is currently on bail after being arrested on connection with this incident. He is due to return to return to Staines Police Station on Tuesday, 29 January.
