Police are appealing after a woman allegedly got out of a car and tried to attack another woman with a glass in Hatfield.

Police received a report that between 1.50pm and 2pm on Friday, February 10, the victim – a woman aged in her 20s – was walking along Bishop’s Rise by the footpath with Grove Lea, when a woman got out of a vehicle and tried to hit the victim in the face with a glass.

A police spokeswoman said: “The alleged offender, who is believed to know the victim, then got back into the vehicle and left.”

PC Jodie Bolton, who is investigating, said: “Thankfully the victim was uninjured during the incident but she was understandably left shaken by her ordeal.

“I believe that there may have been a number of people at a nearby bus stop at the time of the offence who may have seen what happened and I am appealing for those people to contact me via the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference B2/17/691.

“It is also believed that a jogger passed by at the time of the alleged offence, who may be able to assist with the investigation. Please contact me.

“If you’d prefer to provide information anonymously, you can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or submit details through their anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court.”

A 43 year old man from Enfield and a 24 year old woman from Enfield, who were arrested in connection with this incident, have been bailed by police until April 8.
