Police urge Strathroy assault witnesses to come forward

POLICE are looking to speak to several people who may have witnessed an assault on a female in Omagh two weeks ago.
At some time between 1.30am and 2am on Sunday, September 1, the PSNI received a report that a female had been pushed or hit in the Strathroy Road area and fell to the ground.
She sustained “minor injuries”, a police spokeperson said.
Detectives now want to make contact with three or four people who were reported to be in the area at the time of the assault.
Constable Wasson said, “It believed the female was helped across the road by another female, believed to have spoken in an Eastern European accent; police would like to speak with this female to assist with their enquiries.
“We believe that a woman in a pink top and another man were also in the area at the time of the incident and we would like to make contact with them to help with the investigation.”
The PSNI are appealing to anyone with any information in relation to the incident to contact police in Omagh on 101, quoting reference number 1582 3/9/19. 
“Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100 per cent anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime,” Constable Wasson added.
