Police are making a fresh appeal for information after a man was arrested over an alleged assault on a woman in Wootton Bridge near Ryde on the Isle of Wight.
A 47-year-old woman from Sandown on the island reported that she was assaulted by a man she did not know in the car park of the Sloop Inn pub in Mill Square.
The woman received injuries to her legs, back and neck, which are not life threatening.
The 47-year-old woman was driving a silver Volkswagen Passat when she and her partner were involved in an argument with another man who was driving a gold Skoda.
The argument and assault are alleged to have taken place at approximately 6pm on Wednesday, April 13, 2011.
A 46-year-old man from Waterlooville, Hampshire was arrested on April 30, 2011 on suspicion of common assault and bailed until July 17, 2011 pending further enquiries.
Investigating officer PC James Senior of the Isle of Wight’s Targeted Patrol Teams (TPT) said: “It’s alleged an assault took place during a dispute over a car park space outside the Sloop Inn. We know the pub and its car park were busy with other customers at the time. I’m appealing for anyone who was in the area at around 6pm on Wednesday, April 13 to contact police if they saw or heard an argument and assault or if they have any information about what happened.”
