Woman Assaulted In Halifax

It happened Wednesday evening (February 28th).

The incident occurred around 5.15pm after the victim, a woman in her 30’s was walking through the subway at the bottom of Pellon Lane (near to Cow Green) in the town. As she walked through the subway she noticed a man stood at one end who exposed himself before he assaulted her. The victim ran off, and wasn't injured. 

The suspect is described as being a male aged 20-30 years old.

Detective Sergeant Ross Wadsworth of Calderdale CID said; “Any incident of this kind is frightening for the victim and understandably raises concerns across the community. We are continuing our enquiries in to this, and the other reported incidents over the last two weeks and I would encourage people not to be alarmed but to be vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour.

“Our neighbourhood officers continue to conduct their high visibility patrols throughout the area and I would encourage anyone who has any concerns or queries to speak to them.

“At this time, I do believe that this a lone individual and I would like to hear from anyone who has any information, or may be able to identify the person responsible to come forward.

“It is possible that other members of the public were in the area around the time of the incidents and I would urge them to think back if they saw anyone behaving suspiciously and to speak to the police. Our investigation is very much on going.”
