Alert message sent 22/05/2019 15:05:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

One of our officers from the Derby City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team is asking for a schoolgirl victim of a possible assault to come forward.

The appeal comes after officers dealt with a disturbance at around 3.30pm on Thursday, May 2 on St Peter’s Street, Derby. This resulted in a 47-year-old man being arrested on suspicion of assault on a Derby City Council community protection officer (CPO).

In the course of the investigation it appears that during the disturbance a girl wearing school uniform may have been assaulted by the man.

The incident is being dealt with by PC Steve Broadhurst, he said: “The CPO approached the man after he was seen acting aggressively on St Peter’s Street, it is then alleged that the CPO was assaulted, police were called and the man was arrested.

“We are now investigating the circumstances and on viewing CCTV  it looks as if a girl wearing school uniform may have been assaulted and we would very much like to talk to her.

“We can also see that members of the public are filming the incident and we would very much like to view this footage.

“This type of alleged behaviour is not acceptable in the city centre and the team, together with our partners, work hard to prevent it. We would urge anyone who has any information about this incident to make contact with me.”

If you know the schoolgirl or witnessed the incident please contact Steve using any of the following non-emergency contact methods and quoting reference number 19*261754:
