Witness appeal after woman assaulted in Weymouth

Officers in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a woman was assaulted in the town centre.

The incident happened at around 4.50am on Sunday 3 February 2013 outside the HSBC bank on St. Mary Street.

A 24-year-old local woman was headbutted in the face following a verbal altercation with two unknown women.

The victim suffered an injury to her nose.
