“This was a brutal and vicious attack on a young woman, aged in her twenties.

“And while this happened in March, I can only hope that the significance of the date – this was St Patrick’s Day and also the start of lockdown – may jog memories.

“I am appealing to anyone with information, or who may have captured mobile phone or dash cam footage, to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 1378 of 17/03/20.”
