Crewe police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was attacked by a man in Badger Avenue.
At around 3pm on 15 January 2016 a 29-year-old woman was walking along Badger Avenue, Crewe towards the junction of Ford lane.
As she walked past a telephone kiosk at the junction of Ford Lane she was grabbed by a man who was inside the telephone kiosk and an attempt was made to drag her back towards the kiosk. The victim managed to get away and alerted police.
The offender had in his possession a knife at the time and the victim received a minor injury.
