  • Witnesses are being sought as we re-appeal for information into an assault in Hoddesdon.

  • Call 101 quoting crime reference 41/72287/21 if you can help.

We are asking the public for their help as we re-appeal for witnesses and information following an assault in Hoddesdon.

Between 11pm and 12pm on Thursday 16 September a woman was touched inappropriately by a man while on Holly Walk, between St Catherine’s Road and Upper Marsh Lane.

The man is described as 5ft 8ins tall, of average build with stubble.

The woman had left Broxbourne Railway Station at around 10.53pm before making her way to the Churchfields area of Hoddesdon and on to Holly Walk.

Detective Constable Rebecca March, of the Broxbourne Local Crime Unit, said: “We are continuing to investigate this incident and the circumstances around it.

“We’re keen to speak to anyone who was in the Holly Walk area around 11pm on Thursday 16 September.

“In addition, it is believed rail users would have left Broxbourne Station at the same as the woman, possibly walking in the same direction, and could have seen or heard something which could assist our investigation.

“We are appealing for potential witnesses who got off the train from London to Broxbourne arriving at 10.53pm, and other people in the area, who would have been in the Churchfields/St Catherine’s Road area of Broxbourne and the High Street/High Road vicinity of Hoddesdon, near to the old police station, between 10.45pm and 11.15pm who may be able to help.

“If you saw or heard anything out of the ordinary then please get in touch, even a small piece of information could prove crucial.

“If you are able to help I can be contacted directly via email at
