Appeal for witnesses

POLICE are appealing for witnesses after an indecent exposure and several assaults in March.

The incidents happened between 11.50pm on Saturday (January 15) and 2am the following day.

A man exposed himself to a woman at The Square pub, in Market Place, March, before assaulting her and another man.

A short while later, outside the Eastern Promise takeaway, the victims from the first incident, and this time the woman’s husband and another man, were assaulted by a group of men.

The men were kicked to the body, head and legs and the woman punched. The victims from the first incident and the woman’s husband were taken to Peterborough City Hospital for treatment but they were not seriously injured.

The attackers then walked off and got into another fight as they passed Cassanos.

Police were called and six men were arrested.

DC Nigel Coppin, who is investigating, said: “We are linking this indecent exposure with the assaults and I am appealing for anyone who was in this area at the time to consider whether they saw anything significant.

“We need to find out exactly what happened and deal with those responsible.”

Anyone with information should contact DC Coppin on 0345-4564564, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800-555-111.

* The six men who were arrested in connection with the incidents have been released on police bail to return to Huntingdon Police Station on Friday (January 21).
