Main article content
Police are hoping to find a woman who stepped in to help another woman when she was assaulted by a man as she waited for a bus in Corby.
At around 2pm on Wednesday, November 17, the victim was waiting at a stop for the number 1 bus in George Street, opposite McDonald’s, when a man approached her, causing her distress.
When she took out her phone to call police, the man struck it from her hand to the floor, before grabbing her hand.
When the bus arrived at around 2.20pm the man blocked her from getting on it, at which point another woman stepped in to ask if the victim was OK, before the victim ran after the bus as it started to leave.
The woman who stepped in to help, and anyone else who saw the incident, are asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
