Assault – Witney

Police are appealing for witnesses after a 17-year-old youth was assaulted in the early hours of Saturday (17th November) in Witney.

"We would like to appeal to any members of the public who witnessed an incident near Langdale Hall on Saturday to come forward. We would be very interested in hearing about what they saw.”
