Police alert warns drivers about distraction burglaries in Ascot

A witness appeal has been launched by police following an assault in a Windsor alleyway, in which a man grabbed a woman before releasing her.

At 5.37pm yesterday (Thursday), the victim, a woman in her thirties, was walking down the alleyway between Hatch Lane and Longbourn when she was approached from behind by an unknown man.

The man grabbed her and attempted to pick her up before releasing her when she shouted for help.

He then ran down Longbourn, past Windsor Girls' School, and then turned left down Imperial Road.

The victim was not injured and nothing was taken during the incident.

The offender is described as a white male, aged between 20 and 25 years-old, and around 5ft 9ins tall. He had short, dirty blonde hair and was wearing a blue t-shirt with distinctive white writing on the back.
