Police said the woman was assaulted by a man at around 9pm. She suffered minor injuries.

Inspector Sam Greshon said: “A number of witnesses have told us that a car drove past whilst the incident was ongoing, however we have been unable to trace the driver of that car, unfortunately we don’t have a make or model.
